National Council of Women Societies (NCWS), yesterday condemned the alleged murder of Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDP) Women Leader, Mrs. Salome Abuh and three others in Ochadamu by some political thugs.
NCWS President Dr. Gloria Shoda, in a statement in Abuja, frowned on the killings.
She said: “It is bad that in this time in our country, when the role of women has become more imperative, the nation continues to lose lives, especially women.
“The gruesome murder of Abuh by rampaging political thugs in Kogi on Monday is most outrageous and must be investigated to deter future occurrence.”
The NCWS president expressed concern that the violence that enveloped the state governorship/Senatorial elections last Saturday could escalate to the killing of the women leader.
News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Abuh was sleeping in her home when some political thugs set her building ablaze.
She said: “This is very bad and I am using this opportunity to call on the security agencies to investigate and ensure that perpetrators are brought to book.
Shoda, who also condemned the manhandling of the candidate of the Social Democratic Party (SDP) in the Kogi governorship election by thugs, called for appropriate sanction.
