Kenneth Okonkwo

Renowned Nigerian actor cum politician, Kenneth Okonkwo, has called out the Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai, over the killing of the Labour Party (LP) women leader, Victoria Chintex, in the governor’s domain.

Naija News reported earlier that Chintex was confirmed dead after unknown gunmen suspected to be assassins stormed her residence on Monday night, November 28, 2022, and shot her dead while her husband sustained gunshot injuries.

The Publicity Secretary of the Labour Party, Zone 3, Kaduna State, Edward Simon Buju, confirmed the incident on Tuesday.

Reacting to the sad development, Okonkwo, a spokesperson for the Labour Party Presidential Campaign Council, said El-Rufai should be blamed for the politician’s death if the perpetrators are not apprehended immediately.

Okonkwo, via his Twitter handle, insisted that El-Rufai, as the Chief Security Officer (CSO) of Kaduna State, would pay for Vintex’s death if her killers were not arrested.

The tweet reads: “The Labour Party Women Leader in Kaura, Kaduna State, Victoria Chintex, was shot dead on Monday, 28th Nov, by suspected assassins.

“The APC Governor of Kaduna State, El-Rufai, should be held responsible for her death as the CSO if the killers are not apprehended immediately”.
