Five years after Bright Obodo, the Labour Party Candidate for Warri South Constituency Two in the 2015 State House of Assembly Elections was allegedly assassinated, the police are yet to apprehend those behind the killing.
Recalling the incident in a statement to mark the 5th anniversary of his assassination, Bright Obodo family members expressed sadness that the killers who cut short his life, leaving his widow and three children without a breadwinner are still walking the streets as free men.
The statement signed by Honourable Obruche Obodo, said the Bright Obodo family is however consoled that he lived a courageous life and gave his life in the quest for a better deal for his people.
According to the family, Bright Obodo will continue to be remembered as a man who confronted wicked and corrupt politicians and refused all compromises to sell his conscience and deny his people the dividends of democracy.
While expressing hope that the killers of Bright Obodo will one day be brought to justice, the family urged all well-meaning persons to take up the fight against political injustice, electoral malpractices and political assassination in the country.
Bright Obodo, widely believed to have won the 2015 Warri South Two Constituency Seat but denied through electoral malpractices, was assasatd while his petition was before the election petition tribunal.
