Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom has commiserated with the All Progressives Congress, APC in the state over the murder of Mr Boniface Okloho, the party’s Chairman in Ohimini Local Government Area.
In a statement sent to ASKiNG RADiO by Governor Ortom’s Press Secretary, Terver Akase, the Governor strongly condemns the killing and urges security agencies to ensure that those responsible are apprehended for prosecution.
He describes the act as “barbaric, anti-democratic and capable of derailing the electoral process in the area…violence in any form has no place in democracy, and those who take the lives of others on account of politics are the real enemies of the State”. Governor Ortom adds.
He particularly sympathizes with the Okloho family, the people of Ohimini as well as the leadership and members of APC in the State and prays God to grant the soul of the deceased eternal rest.
Mr. Boniface Okloho was killed last week by yet-to-be-identified gunmen.
