In a distressing incident at the Agala Ogane Polling Unit in Anyigba, the victim, Umar Hassan, fell prey to SDP thugs wielding sophisticated weapons.
Eyewitness Adamu recounts the invasion, describing a scene reminiscent of horror movies, with the assailants threatening violence against those not supporting what they termed “The Igala Agenda.”
The SDP thugs, chanting war songs, specifically targeted APC members, issuing ominous warnings of similar fates for those opposing their agenda.
Despite the absence of military intervention, the life of Hassan, accused of being an APC member, was tragically cut short.
Hon. Kingsley Fanwo, the Spokesperson of the APC Governorship Campaign Council and the state Commissioner for Information, vehemently condemned the attack.
He called for swift action by security agencies to apprehend Hassan’s killers, emphasizing the need to restore confidence in the electoral process.
In the wake of this tragic incident, questions arise about the safety of political participation.
Fanwo urges a thorough investigation into the murder, highlighting the need to address violence targeting individuals based on their political affiliations.
