The Spokesperson of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Campaign Council, Kogi State, Faruk Adejoh-Audu during an interview on Channels Television programme, Sunrise Daily pointed accusing fingers at the supporters of the All Progressives Congress (APC) who he claimed killed Mrs Abuh as a mark ‘celebration.’

“The woman was killed after the announcement of result on Monday. APC supporters were jubilating and part of their celebration was to surround her house and set the house ablaze,” he said.

He added that the attackers shut the doors and window to Mrs Abuh’s house during the attack and ensured she didn’t have a way of escape.
