The Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi, has described the killing of the party’s Kaduna women leader, Mrs Victoria Chintex by yet-to-be-identified gunmen on Tuesday as shocking.
Obi took to his verified social media handles on Tuesday evening to mourn the death of the woman leader and to condole with her family, saying, the killing of the woman and many other innocent Nigerians is the reason why he will prioritise war against insecurity as his first task if elected as president in 2023.
The former Anambra governor 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.
“May the soul of the late Mrs. Victoria Chintex rest in perfect peace. My sincere condolence to her family.
“We must not allow the waste of human lives in Nigeria under any guise.”
