He said: “We cannot establish whether he drowned inside the pond or whether he was killed but investigations have commenced to unravel the mystery behind his death.
We have not made any arrest so far but we assure the citizens of the state that we would ensure that the matter is investigated to its logical conclusion”.
Meanwhile, State Governor David Umahi has described the death of the 74-year-old former Senator as a ‘monumental loss’ to the state and nation.
Umahi, who commiserated with Nwali’s family during a condolence visit on Tuesday, described him as a great scientist and patriotic Nigerian.
“His death is shocking to all citizens of the state as his life which was full of mysteries, embodied truth and commitment to the state’s cause,” he said.
The governor who was accompanied by the Secretary to the State Government, Prof. Bernard Odoh, and top government officials, urged Nwali’s children to immortalise him.
“You should live just and principled lives which your late father epitomised during his sojourn on earth. The state government would assist the family during his burial and afterwards while upholding the legacies he left behind,” he said.
It will be recalled that Nwal represented Abakaliki Senatorial District at the National Assembly from 1979 to 1983. Nwali lost his entire family in a Forker 28-plane crash at the Enugu Airport in 1983 but later remarried.
