Tragedy struck on Saturday as a 35-year-old All Progressives Congress (APC) supporter, identified as Umar Hassan, was shot dead by suspected thugs.
Hassan was reportedly gunned down at his Agala Ogane Polling Unit, Anyigba as thugs went on rampage, threatening to kill anyone who voted against the “Igala Agenda”.
According to an eyewitness, the thugs, who stormed the polling unit with sophisticated weapons threatened to kill anyone who “doesn’t vote for the SDP”.
“It was like what we watch in horror movies as they invaded our Polling Unit with very dangerous weapons. Unfortunately, Hassan fell victim and he was gunned down.
“They kept chanting war songs that they would kill anyone who voted against the Igala Agenda. They targeted Hassan being an APC member.
“What surprised me most was that the Military guys that had been targeting APC supporters for arrest and harassment were not on the ground to save Hassan’s life. It was so unfortunate”.
There was calm across many Polling Units in Anyigba until the gunmen stormed many units to fight anyone suspected to be an APC member.
