A pro-democracy and Rights Advocacy group, Foundation for Environmental Rights Advocacy and Development (FENRAD) has expressed concern over the alleged murder of a teenager, Daniel Ogbonna by an alleged staff of the Abia State Environmental Protection Agency (ASEPA) which occurred close to a receptacle located on Asa Road, Aba.

The slain Daniel Ogbonna of 36 St. Michael’s Road, Aba, As stated by reports, was alleged to have left his residence at 5:30 pm to dispose waste at the aforementioned location where he was said to have, like others before him, disposed of the waste on the road since the receptacle was filled.

However, a worker identified as ‘Biggy’ ordered the suspect (Mr. Okeugo Ugonna) to go after Master Daniel Ogbonna only for the suspect to land a fatal blow on the 17-year-old, Daniel Ogbonna following which the young teenager died.

But reacting to the ugly incident on Friday, FENRAD in a release jointly signed by its Executive Director, Nelson Nnanna-Nwafor and Head, legal team/litigation, Barrister Olusegun Bamgbose and issued to journalists in Umuahia, on Friday, appealed the Abia Governor, Okezie Ikpeazu to ensure that Justice is served in the reported killing of Daniel and all those named – including the prime suspect, Biggy’ who is still at large.

The Rights group also called on the State Environmental Protection Agency to come clean throughout the pendency of this matter as human life is more vital than any other business.

The statement said, “the Foundation read the statement credited to the Deputy Director-General of the state environmental protection agency, Aba Zone, Mr. Rowland Nwakamma, who among other things said his staff closed on 4:30 pm on the said date of the event (since the incident happened at 5:30pm. Much as this sounds as an alibi, it does not yet suffice, to the Foundation”.

FENRAD further called on the Agency to ensure that justice is established as there is no other agency charged with the environmental mandate of the state outside it.

“While FENRAD understands that the suspect is in police custody, it, in spite of that, wishes to make it known that it shall be following up this matter till the very last is heard of it and justice served. The suspect must be made to face the law and the identity of ‘Biggy’ established, including who he worked for or with until the sad event occurred. Not until this is done and adequate compensation made will assume that justice has been properly dispensed without obstruction. This is the only condition of justice acceptable to the Foundation.

The pro-democracy group, in spite of that, condoled with the bereaved family and all those who may have been affected by the tragic demise of the child.
