The Presidential Candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, has condemned the murder of the LP Women Leader in Kaduna, Mrs Victoria Chintex.
PREMIUM POLITICS reported that Chimtex was said to have been killed on Monday evening by yet-to-be-identified gunmen who broke into her residence at about 8pm.
It was also reported that her husband was shot in the leg and was taken to the hospital for immediate medical attention.
Obi in his reaction stated that her death is a huge loss to her immediate family and to the Party.
Taking to his social media handles, Obi wrote, “I am shocked by the mindless killing of Mrs. Victoria Chintex, the Labour Party’s women leader in Kaura, Kaduna State, by yet-to-be-identified gunmen. Her death is a huge loss to her immediate and extended family, and to our Labour Party. She lives on in our hearts.
“Her killing, and the loss of many innocent lives across the nation to gunmen and terrorists are the reason why I must prioritize the war against insecurity as my first task in office. We must not allow the waste of human lives in Nigeria under any guise.” He tweeted.
