The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) women stormed Abuja, over the gruesome murder of the party’s women leader in Kogi state, Salome Acheju Abuh who was burnt in her house by suspected political thugs shortly after the November 16 governorship election in the state.
The PDP women who started their protest at the premises of the PDP
National Secretariat, later proceeded to the National Assembly premises,
Office of the Inspector General of Police (IGP) and Human Rights
Commission to register their grievances.
They were carrying placards and banners with different inscriptions such as; “stop killing PDP members,” “murder of opposition elements must stop now,” among many others.
Speaking with journalists during the protest, the PDP National Women
Leader, Mariya Waziri asked law enforcement agencies in the country to
arrest and prosecute those behind the dastardly act.
“We are here today to find answers to these nagging questions: Why
are the murderers of our sister Mrs. Salome Acheju Abuh who are well
known in their community still walking free?
“Why is the APC – led government quiet about the murder of Salome
Abuh? How long will justice continue to be delayed and denied for Mrs.
“Who killed Abuh this innocent mother? No mother deserves to be
killed in cold blood, not after enduring the pains and strife of
motherhood. God help us. God help and console the family of Salome Abuh.
This is the height of humiliation and suppression of women in Nigeria.
Where do we go from here?
“We call on the Muhammadu Buhari – led government to value human life
for once. We call on Nigerians to raise their voices in solidarity for
justice for Salome Acheju Abuh.
“We must never rest nor relent until the murderers of our dear sister are held to account,” she said.
