The Nsukka Professionals Association (NPA), Enugu State, has urged the Inspector General of Police (IGP), Usman Baba, and heads of other security agencies to hasten investigation to unravel the identifies of those behind the murder of the Labour Party (LP) senatorial candidate, Mr Oyibo Chukwu.
Chukwu was murdered a day before the February 25, presidential and National Assembly elections in Enugu.
The President of NPA, Mr Charles Nwodo, at a press briefing in Lagos, expressed concerns that no arrest had been made.
The association also raised alarm over plans by some political thugs to cause violence and rig the March 18, governorship and Houses of Assembly elections, especially in Enugu East Senatorial District.
