Soon after the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) declared the applicant of All Progressives Congress (APC) champ of Kogi governorship political decision, political hooligans proceeded on their murdering binge.
As indicated by reports from Kogi, the lady head of Wada Aro Campaign Council, Ochadamu Ward, Hon Mrs Acheju Abuh was apparently scorched alive in her home by supposed happy supporters and hooligans said to praise their gathering’s triumph.
Responding to the underhanded demonstration, the representative, Wada/Aro Campaign Council, Faruk Adejoh-Audu was cited saying “reciting GYB 4+4, the hooligans, shooting sporadically, showed up Hon (Mrs) Abuh’s home at about 2pm this evening and encompassed the house, darting each exit and break from outside”.
“They then poured petrol on the building and set it ablaze as other terrorized villagers watched from hiding. She reportedly attempted to escape through a window but was prevented by the metal burglary proof and gun shots with bullets raining in her direction.
“The blood thirsty thugs waited, shooting and watching with relish while Mrs Abuh cried from inside the inferno until her voice died out. They reportedly left only when the entire house and Mrs Abuh had been burnt to ashes. There are fears that the killing spree may escalate over the night.
“We are calling on all men of good conscience to immediately help the people of Kogi State appeal to the Inspector General of Police to rein in Bello’s thugs and protect our people whose only crime was that they voted for their choice, a vote that was never allowed to count.
“Unless Nigerians of Good conscience immediately come to our aid innocent people may die worse agonizing deaths as the blood lust of Mr Bello and his supporters continue. “So far there’s no indication that the Kogi State Police will arrest her killers or even prevent further attacks and killings of people.”
