The Kogi State All Progressives Congress Governorship Campaign Council has asked security agencies to fish out those responsible for the killing of a female supporter of the party in Kotonkarfe LGA of the state.

Speaking during the inaugural press briefing of the council, on Monday, Kingsley Fanwo, director, media and publicity/spokesperson of the campaign council, said the perpetrators must be brought to justice to serve as deterrent to others.

While commiserating with the family of the deceased, the campaign council alleged that the party member was killed by thugs during a rally of an opposition party in the state.

The council called on APC supporters in the state to remain calm, noting that it is confident that security agencies would not allow criminals to walk freely without consequences.


Fanwo said Usman Ododo, the APC candidate, has remained committed to an issue-based campaign, devoid of violence, ethnocentric narratives or divisive tendencies.

“The initial statement of the police authorities have been reassuring. There must be justice for the murdered soul. Elections are won on the ballot and not via the bullet. Even in the face of glaring provocation, our party and our campaign will remain peaceful and play according to the rules of the game,” the council said.

“Conduct your poll in Kogi State today, you will find that he is not even near the top two contenders in the forthcoming governorship election. The reason is that the good people of Igaland, having followed his activities over the years, and knowing that he lacks the intellectual capacity to represent them, would rather go with responsible candidates.”


Fanwo also pointed out that the attention of the council has been drawn to calls for the director-general of the campaign council to resign his appointment, citing divisive reasons.

He said Shaibu Abubakar Audu, the campaign council DG, has already made clear his commitment to execute a campaign that would usher in the Ododo era of consolidation and continuity.

“No amount of ethnic parroting can distract the politically sagacious Prince Shuaibu Abubakar Audu, minister of steel development, from the historic task ahead. His late father, Prince Abubakar Audu, was committed to a united, prosperous and peaceful Kogi State. The Director General is only following his footsteps,” he said.
