THE ONOKPITE family of Uvwie Local Government Area, Delta State has reinstated their commitment in finding justice for the killers of their son, Chief Ogbe Onokpite, governorship candidate of the Citizens Popular Party in Delta State.
Mr. Diemo Onokpite, younger brother of the late Ogbe Onokpite who spoke on behalf of the family reiterated that the slain politician's family can never compromise their struggle to bring the killers of late Chief Ogbe Onokpite to book.
The family revealed that six policemen have been arrested in connection with the murder case, adding that information gathered so far revealed that he (Ogbe Onokpite) was shot at close range. "Since we have realised that he was shot at close range and the autopsy result was being delayed, we have planned to give him a befitting burial in August. And as the plans are on, we will still be committed to getting justice", he said.
While thanking the police for arresting six policemen in connection with the brutal murder of their brother, the family expressed happiness that with the arrest of the policemen who are being detained in Police Headquarters in Abuja, saying the whole world now knows that the late Onokpite was not a criminal as it was earlier claimed by the police but rather, his killing was orchestrated by yet-to-be identified politicians.
