“Case of mistaken identity” – Uwazuruike makes revelation on Akunyili’s killing


Goddy Uwazuruike, a lawyer and political analyst, has said that Tuesday’s killing of Dr. Chike Akunyili is “a case of mistaken identity”.

According to Uwazuruike in a recent interview with The Biafra Digest, murdered Akunyili ‘was wrongly identified’.

“Let me just put it bluntly: he was a victim of assasination. In order words, they identified him wrongly – from what I gathered.

“It was a case of mistaken person. They were looking for another person. They saw him, he looked like him — that’s what I heard.

“But whether it was him or another person, I condemn it without reservations.

“You cannot create life, so why should you take life?” Uwazuruike, a former President of Aka Ikenga, an association of Igbo professionals, said.
