A women leader of the Labour Party (LP) in Kaura Local Government Area, Kaduna State, named Victoria Chintex has been assassinated.
This was made known in a statement released on Tuesday by the Party’s publicity secretary for the Southern Kaduna Senatorial Zone, Edward Buju. According to Buju, Chintex’s spouse was hurt in the incident and is now being treated at a hospital.
The statement reads; “The Southern Kaduna (Zone 3) Labour Party commiserates with the party chairman and his excos in Kaura local government area, over the untimely demise of our mother and sister, Mrs Victoria Chintex, woman leader, Kaura local government who was killed yesterday (Monday) by some unknown gunmen in her residence in Kaura.
“More so, as we await the burial plans by the family, the Zone 3 Labour Party will make support to her family.
“On behalf of our presidential candidate, Peter Obi; our gubernatorial candidate in Kaduna state, Jonathan Asake; the party senatorial candidate for Southern Kaduna zone, Mike Auta, we call on the people of Kaura LGA, to be law abiding as vengeance is of the Lord.”
Three years ago, Salome Abuh, a woman leader of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), was shot and set on fire at her home in Kogi State’s Ofu Local Government Area.
In March 2021, a High Court in Idah, Kogi State, found one of the suspects, Ocholi Edicha, guilty of culpable homicide and sentenced him to 12 years and 6 months in jail.
Meanwhile, Nigerian Singer and songwriter Slami Ifeanyi was shot dead in Umubere in Akwa, capital of Anambra State. It was gathered that the Anambra-based singer was shot dead by yet-to-identified gunmen.
Reports indicate the 31-year-old former Mr. Anambra Universe was driving in his newly acquired vehicle when he was attacked and killed.
An unconfirmed close friend of the Slami Ifeanyi who spoke about the incident alleged that the attack against the singer was targeted.
