  • Senator Echocho Said Kogi PDP Women Leader Was A Victim Of Retaliatory Attack
  • Mrs. Salome Ache met an ill fated incident that took her life. She was very active in the electioneering campaigns, exercised her civic right by voting. Then the whole stress took a toll on her body. She decided to rest and while asleep, thugs invaded her house. They set the house ablaze and prevented her from escaping the fire by blocking all exits while shooting sporadically at her.
    She was heard according to an eyewitness, shouting and crying for help in agony as the fire devoured her.
    She eventually lost the war and lost the battle, she died. The fire consumed her body.
    A senator from representing Kogi under the APC has reacted.
    He said: “I want to commend the mover of the last motion in respect of electoral violence in Kogi and in particular the woman in question.
    “I want to say it here that, that woman only happened to be a victim of circumstance, she was a very peace-loving woman but the attack on her was retaliatory.
    “The attack was an attack on APC when Yahaya Bello was declared a winner. Two people almost died, they are on danger list in the hospital arising from that attack.
    “It was a retaliatory attack on PDP and unfortunately she became the victim very painful.”
    The lawmaker, however, called for legislation that would check electoral violence in Nigeria, adding that violence was an unfortunate development in elections.
    He revealed how he almost lost his life due to violence in the guber polls.
    “Going forward, I want to believe there is an urgent need for laws against election violence in Nigeria. Bill’s that will put in place various deterrent measures against election violence in Nigeria.
    “I almost lost my life during the election, some people are on danger list, one person died yesterday as a result of the violence and similar violence happened at various locations in Bayelsa State.
    “I want to propose that way forward there should be sanctions that should act as deterrent to occurrence of any form of violence, before, during and after any election.”
    Meanwhile, James Manager, representing Delta South Senatorial District, condemned the heinous act, insisting that the burning of the PDP Women Leader was an act taken too far.
    Manager insisted: “The death of the Kogi Women Leader was most unfortunate and I condemn it for every reason I condemn it.
    “Whether it is retaliatory or whatever that must never happen. I want to agree with the President that those who perpetrated that dastardly act must be fished out and if they have been arrested as reported in the media they must be paraded for everybody to see,
    “This one must not be swept under the carpet. For a woman to be burnt to ashes I think it is an abomination.”
