President Buhari has charged security agencies to fish out those who burnt Kogi State Peoples Democratic Party Woman Leader, Mrs Achejuh Abuh, to death during the state governorship election on Saturday November 16th.

Some assailants had gone to Abuh's home and set it on fire while she was inside. They  ignored her cry for help and left her to burn to death.

In a statement released by his Special Adviser on Media and Publication, Femi Adesina, President Buhari described the killing as “primitive behaviour” that should not be condoned.

"President Muhammadu Buhari expects scrupulous investigation into the heinous murder of Madam Achejuh Abuh, Woman Leader of the Peoples Democratic Party in Wada/Aro campaign council, in the just-concluded gubernatorial election in Kogi State.

“The President decries whatever could spur anyone to take the life of another human being, particularly a woman, who was burnt to death in her home in the most gruesome manner.

“President Buhari charges all security agencies involved in the investigation to do a thorough and expeditious job on the matter, so that justice could be served without fear or favour.

"We must learn to behave decently, whether during elections or at other times. No life should be taken wantonly under any guise, and the fact that this reprehensible act occurred two days after voting shows primitive behaviour, which should not be accepted in a decent society,” the statement read
