Presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP) Peter Obi has expressed shock at the killing of Victoria Chintex, the party’s woman leader in Kaura Local Government Area of Kaduna State.
Mrs Chintex was killed by unidentified gunmen at her residence in Kaura on Monday. Her husband reportedly sustained injuries during the attack and was taken to the hospital for treatment.
Reacting to the attack in a series of Twitter posts on Tuesday, Mr Obi said “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 prioritise the war against insecurity as my first task in office. We must not allow the waste of human lives in Nigeria under any guise.
“May the soul of Late Mrs Victoria Chintex rest in perfect peace. My sincere condolence to her family.”
In a statement released earlier on Tuesday, publicity secretary of the LP in southern Kaduna senatorial zone Edward Buju said “the Southern Kaduna (Zone 3) Labour Party commiserates with the party chairman and his excos in Kaura local government area, over the untimely demise of our mother and sister, Mrs Victoria Chintex, woman leader, Kaura local government area, who was killed yesterday (Monday) by some unknown gunmen in her residence in Kaura.
Mr Buju described the deceased as “industrious, hardworking and a dedicated party leader,” adding that the part is awaiting burial plans by the deceased’s family and will provide support.
