In his speech, Chikamnayo said:  “Last night, we received the very sad news that the easy going Ken Nwosu was gruesomely attacked on his way home by unknown gunmen. The state government on getting that information made spirited effort to save his life at the Specialist and Diagnostic Centre. The government made sure that the best team was assembled promptly. After that, we looked forward for the quick recovery of Dr Ken Nwosu. The idea was to stabilize him before flying him abroad for medical treatment.
 
 
“The changes he brought to the Agriculture ministry are too obvious even from the environment. It is on this sad note that I on behalf of Abia State government announce the demise of Dr Ken Nwosu. From his antecedents, we have lost a colossus. Security agencies have been directed to fish out those involved in the dastardly act. The burial arrangements would be made public subsequently.”
 
 
Dr. Nwosu, who hails from Amizi Olokoro in Umuahia South LGA, retired from civil service as Executive Director of NRCRI and was appointed Commissioner for Agriculture in Abia State cabinet in September 2013.
