BY AMOS DUNIA, ABUJA – President Muhammadu Buhari has declared that any descent to barbarism, as was visited on Late Mrs Achejuh Abuh, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Woman Leader in Wada/Aro Campaign Council, has gone out of the realm of politics, and is pure criminality and bestiality.
President Buhari decried 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.
These were contained in a statement by the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina in which he further said that President Buhari vowed that such evildoers must be brought to justice, irrespective of whatever allegiances they hold.
In the words of the President; “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 charged all security agencies involved in the investigation to do a thorough and expeditious job on the matter, so that justice could be served without fear or favor, stressing that he expects scrupulous investigation into the heinous murder of Madam Achejuh Abuh.
He sympathizes with the family of the deceased, vowing that the law would catch up with the malefactors, and justice would be done.
