Suspected gunmen have killed a popular politician and stalwart of the People’s Democratic Party, Ambrose Abah, in Ugbokolo, Okpokwu LGA of Benue State.
Before Hon Ambrose Abah was killed, he was reportedly tied down and his wife and daughter were hurt by the hoodlums.
According to an eyewitness, Mary Ekoja, the incident came less than two weeks after the female hostel of the Benue State Polytechnic was attacked and over 30 handsets and a huge sum of money was carted away from the helpless students while undisclosed number of the female students were raped.
She said, “Over 15 families were attacked in that single operation with not less than 10 rape cases involving old women and children. Several people sustained various degrees of injuries in the attack.
“This incident happened in less than 48 hours after a similar attack on Ai-Abba and Ai-Akor areas of Ugbokolo which left Mr Lawrence Ekoja (aka Radical) and Hon Ambrose Abah dead.”
Several calls to the state PPRO, Moses Yamu, were not answered as at the time of filing this report.
