President Muhammadu Buhari has told security agencies to find those behind the murder of Mrs. Achejuh Abuh, Peoples Democratic Party, PDP Woman leader in Kogi State.
According to Buhari, these evildoers must be made to face the law, irrespective of their political parties.
Buhari revealed this in a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Chief Femi Adesina.
He said he wants an immediate investigation into the sad murder of Mrs. Abuh, who was a member of Wada/Aro campaign council, in the just concluded gubernatorial election in Kogi State.
His words, “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 favor.
“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 behavior, which should not be accepted in a decent society.”
“Such evildoers must be brought to justice, irrespective of whatever allegiances they hold.”
Way to go.
