In a condolence message to the Government and the folks of Anambra State, Ngige stated the “murder of Dr. Akunyili and others in what has lately become a killing field is an anomie and an unmaking of the Igbo as a race beholden to an ultra-jealous credo of sanctity of life.

“While I stand entirely with the awe and grief-stricken people of Anambra State, basseted lately by incessant killings which distort whom we are, it is auspicious again to beckon on all of us to look inwards and reinvent our Igboness; for what is trending, is certainly uncharacteristic.

“This strange cavalcade of shootings, strangely becoming a fashion is diminishing our hearth, and quietly moving us to the exact spot that we must never be. And time is now to advise ourselves about ourselves and save ourselves from ourselves.

“The stray, dark-colured goat is better tracked while the sun is bright over sky. Let’s use our toes to find the tiny object in the pool, our ancestors would advise!”
