Anambra State Women and Social Welfare Commissioner, Mrs Ify Obinabo has reassured of her commitment to bringing to book the killers of Late Charity Okoli, the lady whose organs were harvested by her servant for ritual purposes.

She made this known in her office in Awka when the news of the death of Septuagenarian got to her.

Reacting to the developmental , Mrs Obinabo expressed sadness over the death of the seventy-two-year-old woman and vowed to use everything within her power to bring justice to the deceased.

She went further to urge everyone especially Umunze women who have gone on a peaceful protest to give the court some time to follow the law and deliver judgment on the issue, even as she explained that she will not relent until others involved in the dastardly act are apprehended and arraigned before the special court in Awka.

The Women and Social Welfare boss also used the medium to debunk the news that state government has asked Ebonyi indigenes resident in Anambra to leave the state but has stated that whoever that resides in the state, must abide by law and order or go to another state as Anambra government will not condone any act that will threaten the peaceful coexistence of its citizens.

Recall that over three thousand women from Umunze Community, Orumba South Local Government Area, yesterday staged a protest over the death of the septuagenarian, Mrs Charity, whose body parts were harvested for ritual purposes.

Mrs Charity, as she was simply known, was last week attacked at her residence in Umunze, where her nipples, private part, lips and fingers were cut off by her attackers, presumably for money ritual.

She was rushed to Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu University Teaching Hospital, Awka, where she was receiving treatment, but later died as a result of injuries sustained.
