In a related development, APC in Lagos state was recently thrown into mourning following the death of Timothy Oyasodun, a party chieftain.
Oyasodun, who was a cleric, died on the Boxing day, Saturday, December 26, with his death described as "a great loss to the entire progressive family in Lagos state."
He was the chairman of the ruling party in Bariga local government development council, Somolu local government area.
Similarly, fear gripped the people of Bosso local government area of Niger state following the murder of Alhaji Ahmodu Mohammed, a chieftain of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Mohammed was said to have been killed by bandits on Thursday, December 24, who also kidnapped his three daughters.
According to eyewitnesses who described the incident as “unfortunate and pathetic”, the suspected bandits numbering 15 stormed the community wielding different weapons and started shooting to scare people.
Mohammed's murder happened a few weeks after Philip Shekwor, the chairman of the APC in Nasarawa state, was found dead.
Shekwor was kidnapped by gunmen on Saturday night, November 21, at his residence along Dunamis Church, Bukan Sidi in Lafia.
The effort of the police to ensure the safe release of the APC leader was abortive as he was found dead the following day.
