Musa Wada the flagbearer for the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, candidate in the just concluded governorship election in Kogi State has called on the Nigerian Police to fish out killers of Acheju Abu.
Recall that during a bloody clash by party supporters on Monday at Ochadamu, Ofu Local Government area of Kogi State, two people were killed.
The state Police Command’s Spokesman, DSP Willam Aya, who confirmed the development on Tuesday, said that a former councillor in the local government, Mrs Salome Abu and Mr Awalu Zekeri died in the crisis.
Aya explained that the crisis started following a misunderstanding between Zekeri of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and Mr Goodwin Simeon, a member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
To retaliate , some angry youths in Ochadamu went to the house of Mr Simeon Abuh, who is an uncle to the suspect and set it ablaze.
He said 60-year-old Mrs Salome Abuh died inside the house after she was burned to death.
Wada who paid a condolence visit to the family of the deceased on Tuesday called on the Nigeria Police to investigate and arrest the killers of Abu.
On his Twitter page, he wrote: “Earlier today, I paid a condolence visit to the family of the Late Mrs. Acheju Abu who was burnt alive in her house in Ochadamu, of Ofu Local Government Area of Kogi state. She was a sincere servant of our party and the masses.
“I call on the Nigeria Police to investigate and arrest the killers of the Late Achebu. May the good Lord comfort her family for her untimely departure.”
