Kogi guber: One dies as thugs attack Wada’s convoy
One person was reportedly killed when some thugs suspected to be supporters of the All Progressives Congress, APC, on Saturday evening layed ambush on the convoy of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, governorship candidate, Musa Wada, on his way to attend a meeting at Ayingba in Dekina local government area of the state.
The name of the person killed was given as Yusuf Seidu Uhiene.
PDP campaign council in the state, while decrying the unprovoked attacks on its members, particularly in Anyigba and other parts of Dekina local government, called on security agencies not to look the other way as members of the opposition in the state are constantly attacked.
In a statement issued by the Deputy Director, Public Communication, Austin Okai, the PDP said the spate of attacks are unbecoming a threat to next month governorship election in the state.
He said the young man was killed by thugs believed to be supporters of the ruling APC. He stated that two PDP supporters, Nasiru Sule and Ilemona, also sustained serious injuries.
Mr Okai said, “our candidate, Engr Musa Wada was in Anyigba today (Saturday) to attend the Kogi East PDP stakeholders meeting. Between the main road and Harbour bay, the venue of the meeting, APC thugs unleashed mayhem on our supporters killing one and injuring two others.”
He confirmed that the PDP chairman for Anyigba ward, Alhaji Amidu, has made a formal complaint to the police over the attack.
