The wife of Mr. Light Nwachukwu, who was shot by an unidentified soldier stationed at the premises of the Inner Galaxy Steel Company in Ukwa West Local Government Area of Abia State, has appealed for assistance from the state government and compassionate individuals across Nigeria.

Nwachukwu was shot by the soldier attached to the 14 Brigade Headquarters of the Nigerian Army, while protesting alongside others, over the sudden death of Miss Ocheze Ogbonna within the premises of the company.

The wife of the gunshot victim, Mrs. Ijeoma Light Nwachukwu, lamented that since her husband was admitted at the Federal Medical Centre, Umuahia, the family had borne the cost of medical treatment.

She called on the Abia State Governor, Dr. Alex Otti, and other well-meaning Nigerians to assist her husband. Nwachukwu, who is lying critically ill at the Federal Medical Centre (FMC), Umuahia, the state capital, was admitted at the hospital following the intervention of the state government after other hospitals rejected him.

The younger brother of the victim, Mr. Chikodi Nwachukwu, stated that when it was reported that a worker at the Inner Galaxy had pushed their sister to death, they rushed to the company to find out what had happened.

He said it was during a peaceful protest that the soldier shot at his brother.

According to the victim’s brother, drugs prescribed by the medical doctors are usually bought by them in addition to the lab tests.
