Peter Obi, the Labour Party, LP, presidential candidate, has lamented the death of the Labour Party's Women Leader in Kaura, Kaduna State, Mrs Victoria Chintex. Obi said the death was a huge loss.
Mrs. Chintex was allegedly assassinated by gunmen who stormed her home on Monday. Her husband was also shot.
Reacting to the incident, Obi, who is the party’s presidential candidate, took to his official social media accounts to condemn the killing.
“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,” he tweeted on Tuesday, hours after the news broke.
“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 the office. We must not allow the waste of human lives in Nigeria under any guise.
“May the soul of the Late Mrs Victoria Chintex rest in perfect peace! My sincere condolence to her family.”
