Soludo Suspends Chairman of Nnewi North LG Over Wife’s Death

Prof. Chukwuma Soludo, governor of Anambra State, has suspended Hon Mbazulike Iloka, caretaker committee chairman of Nnewi North local government area, following the death of his wife. 

According to reports, Chidiebere, Iloka’s wife, collapsed and died after serving her husband breakfast on Sunday.

The originator Because there were indications of violence on her body, it’s conceivable that the woman was battered before she died. 

According to the report, a wound on the wife’s head caused widespread outrage. 

In a letter of suspension, which was signed by Anambra State Commissioner for Local Government, Chieftaincy and Community Affair, Tony Collins Nwabunwanne, the Chairman of Nnewi North was asked to hand over to the head of Local Government administration, to avoid interfering with investigation. 


The letter read: “Following the sad news of the death death of your wife, late Mrs Chidiebere Iloka on 7th August 2022, there have been a massive outcry over the circumstances leading to her death, including alleged possible homicide. 

“While you are presumed innocent until the completion of investigations, it has become imperative that you step aside to allow unfettered investigation and justice.

Iloka was recently sworn in as the chairman of the local government, and had only stayed in office for about a week.
