Written by City Radio on August 12, 2022
THE Anambra State government has suspended the Nnewi North Local Government Transition Committee Chairman, Hon Mbazulike Iloka, who is popularly known as Mba Mba, circumstances of his wife’s death last Sunday.
Iloka who had arranged to meet with the staff of the Local Government on Tuesday after a get together party, had to put off the party and the familiarization with the council staff following the death of his wife.
Hon. Iloka’s wife, Chidiebere, was said to have slumped and died on Sunday morning, after serving her husband breakfast, but rumours following the alleged outcry by people attracted government attention leading to his suspension by the State Commissioner for Local Government, Chieftaincy and Community Affair, Tony Collins Nwabunwanne of Iloka.
However, Anambra State Commissioner for Local Government, Chieftaincy and Community Affair, Nwabunwanne, in his suspension letter to Iloka, asked him to hand over to the head of Local Government administration, to avoid interfering in investigation.
Iloka has only recently been appointed Chairman of the local government; he has only been in office for about a week before his eventual removal.
