SENATOR THEODORE AHAMEFULE ORJI CON
THE SENATE FEDERAL REPUBLIC OF NIGERIA
SENATE WING 220 NATIONAL ASSEMBLY COMPLEX
THREE ARMS ZONE, GARKI ABUJA
Tuesday 31, January 2017

On behalf of my family, I send my heartfelt condolence to the family of Mr. Ben Onyechere, my former Media Adviser who was gruesomely murdered in cold blood by yet to be identified assailants at Owerri, Imo State on Sunday.
You cannot imagine how brokenhearted the sad news of his demise has left me especially the manner in which his blossom life was exterminated. It is despicable and unimaginable.
Mr. Onyechere was a quintessential gentleman, a core professional and a team player with heart of gold adored by all; exceptional attributes that stand him out and endeared him to me. He was a man who cannot hurt a fly; I am still at lost why someone will take such precious life in such a pusillanimous manner.
His willingness to help and shoulder other people’s responsibilities even at his own detriments made him such a fantastic character. These memories will remain indelible in my heart and that of my family.
I cannot imagine how much his family especially wife and children will miss him because he impacted positively on the lives of everyone he came in contact with. I know it’s difficult but God the omniscience will give them the fortitude to bear this irreparable loss.
Even though the lives of those cowards who committed this dastardly act cannot atone for his precious life, I urge the Nigeria Police especially the Inspector-General of Police and Imo State Police Commissioner to do all within their powers to investigate and ensure that they are brought to book.
Until the resurrection day, I pray that God will grant his gentle soul eternal rest in his bosoms. Adieu Onyechere.
Sign
His Excellency, Senator Theodore Ahamefula Orji CON.
Former Governor of Abia State and Senator representing Abia central.
