President Muhammadu Buhari has asked the security agencies to fish out those who burnt Kogi state Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), woman leader, Achejuh Abuh, to death during the state governorship election.
The Herald reported that shortly after the announcement of the victory of the APC governorship candidate by the INEC political thugs allegedly continued their killings, including burning alive Acheju Abuh in her home.
In a statement released by his special adviser on media and publication, Femi Adesina, President Buhari described the killing as “primitive behaviour” that should not be condoned.
The statement read: “President Muhammadu Buhari expects scrupulous investigation into the heinous murder of Madam Achejuh Abuh, Woman Leader of the Peoples Democratic Party in Wada/Aro campaign council, in the just-concluded gubernatorial election in Kogi state.
“The President decries whatever could spur anyone to take the life of another human being, particularly a woman, who was burnt to death in her home in the most gruesome manner.
“President Buhari charges all security agencies involved in the investigation to do a thorough and expeditious job on the matter, so that justice could be served without fear or favour.
“We must learn to behave decently, whether during elections or at other times. No life should be taken wantonly under any guise, and the fact that this reprehensible act occurred two days after voting shows primitive behaviour, which should not be accepted in a decent society.”
Earlier, The Herald gathered that husband of Mrs Salome Abuh, the late women leader of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ochadamu, Ofu LGA of Kogi state, Elder Simeon Abuh, spoke about the death of his wife.
