Anambra state Commissioner for Local Government, Chieftaincy and Community Affairs, Mr Tony Collins Neabunwanne, signed the suspension letter, adding that Mbazulike had to be suspended to make room for an unfettered investigation of the incident, after some people alleged that the deceased, Mrs Chidiebere Iloka, who collapsed and died on Aug. 7, was a victim of domestic violence.
The suspension letter reads;
“Following the sad and sudden death of your wife, the late Mrs Chidiebere Iloka on Aug. 7, there has been a massive public outcry over the circumstances leading to the cause of her death, including alleged possible homicide.
“While you are presumed innocent until the completion of the investigation, it has become imperative that you should step aside to allow for unfettered investigation.
