President, Women Arise and Centre for Change Dr. Joe Okei-Odumakin, has cautioned security agencies on the need to ensure no life is wasted as Edo State goes to election this weekend and Ondo State in October.
The frontline activist gave this warning in a press statement she personally signed. While commending the United States for placing visa bans on election riggers, Okei-Odumakin, who underscored the importance of saving lives, rather than wasting it said it would be glad to see perpetrators of violence during elections in Nigeria tried at the International Criminal Court.
“Such a measure will deter our security forces from being used to waste the lives of innocent citizens for electoral manipulation.
“It is important to let all those who will carry guns during election know that their own lives will be on the line for every life wasted. We have had enough of beastialities.
“We cannot forget so soon how innocent souls were wasted during the elections in Kogi. We still carry deep pains in our hearts about the woman who was hacked to death even after the elections in Kogi,” she declared.
