President Muhammadu Buhari is worried over what he called “heinous murder” of Madam Achejuh Abuh, Woman Leader of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in Wada/Aro campaign council, in the just concluded gubernatorial election in Kogi State, insisting on scrupulous investigation into the matter.
A statement today, November 24 by the special dviser to the President on media and publicity, Femi Adesina, quoted Buhari as decrying 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.
Buhari stressed that any descent to barbarism, as was visited on the PDP Woman Leader, has gone out of the realm of politics, and is pure criminality and bestiality.
“Such evildoers must be brought to justice, irrespective of whatever allegiances they hold.
“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.”
The President then ordered all security agencies involved in the investigation to do a thorough and expeditious job on the matter, so that justice would be served without fear or favor.
He sympathized with the family of the deceased, even as he vowed that the law would catch up with the malefactors, and justice would be done.
