The Governor who reportedly described his death as regrettable announced that a joint security task force had moved into action to ensure that such dastardly acts would not re-occur.
He stressed that the community vigilance groups as well as leaders of town unions had been briefed on what do.
The resolution was signed by the Chairmen and Secretaries of the eight branches of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) in Anambra State, led by the Chairman, Onitsha Branch, Mr Onyechi Ononye and Ekene Okonkwo of Awka.
“That all lawyers in Anambra State shall boycott all courts from Monday, March 22 to Wednesday, March 24.
