State govt suspends Anambra LGA chairman over his wife’s sudden death

The state government has suspended Mbazuluike Iloka, the newly elected Transition Committee Chairman of Nnewi North LGA of the Anambra State, over his wife's sudden demise.

The state government has suspended Mbazuluike Iloka, the newly elected Transition Committee Chairman of Nnewi North LGA of the Anambra State, over his wife’s sudden demise.

His suspension came to effect on Friday, August 12 and was contained in a letter which was signed by Tony Nwabunwanne, the commissioner for Local Government, Chieftaincy and Community Affairs.


As per the letter, the council boss was told to hand over to the Head of the LGA, pending the reason for the ongoing investigation over the sudden demise of his wife.

His wife’s family accused Iloka of being behind her sudden demise last Sunday, August 7, a few days after he had sworn in office.

They stated that she caught him when he chose some young females she suspected to be his side chicks at an event which they attended on Saturday.

She was reported to have tried to stop his husband from choosing the ladies, but he denied to listen to her.

They further reported that following the misconception caused by the incident, the council boss, in anger, started beating her wife on Sunday, that she died.

On the other hand, Mbazulike immediately refused the allegations, and while stating his side of the story, the council boss said that his wife suddenly slumped and died.


However, his claims have been rejected by his wife’s family members. They accused Mbazukuike of domestic violence as he used to beat her over every petty argument. A member of the family stated that when they reached at the scene of the incident, they found Chidiebere’s (victim) dead body on the floor with marks of cuts and bruises on her body.

It was found that the police had started an investigation into the incident while the dead body of the victim had been deposited at the morgue for post-mortem.
