The House of Representatives candidate for Ebonyi/Ohaukwu federal constituency of Ebonyi, Chief Ndubisi Chibueze-Agbo, has offered scholarships to children of late Ikechukwu Udoka, who was killed by gunmen in the area.

Udoka was a member of the Ebubeagu security outfit, set up by the state government.

Chibueze-Agbo, of the Labour Party (LP), made the offer on Tuesday when he paid a Christmas visit to the family of the late Ebubeagu operative at his hometown, Onuorie, Umuagara, Izhia in Ohaukwu Local Government Area (LGA) of the state.

Chibueze-Agbo, a Former Commissioner for Education in the state, condoled the deceased’s wife, his five children (3 boys and 2 girls), aged mother and the entire family.

“I will enroll the children of the deceased in schools and I call on the the state government to assist the family by providing a reasonable job for his wife to enable her take care of the children and his aged mother.

“I also urge the government to provide shelter for the family as the deceased could not complete the building he was constructing and which was destroyed by rain,” he said.

He described the late Ikechukwu Udoka as a public-spirited individual who died in active service while trying to secure lives and properties of the citizens.

“The government should take adequate care of the families of individuals who lost their lives serving the state.

“This is to prevent apathy in the delivery of essential and selfless service to the state,” he said.

Mrs Chinenye Udoka, wife of the deceased, thanked Chibueze-Agbo amidst sobs, lamenting that her life had been shattered with her husband’s death.

Naija247news reports that Chibueze-Agbo was accompanied on the visit by members of the United for Jesus Ministry which the deceased belonged to before his death. (www.naija247news.com)
