Chairperson of Bogoro Local Government area, Bauchi state Ms.Hassana Arkila has confirmed the death of a serving Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) councilor representing Gizaki/Badagari ward , Bogoro local council,Mr Musa Daniel.
The late Musa Daniel was said to have been clubbed to death by angry youth while on electoral duty, in the local government Saturday April 11, 2015.
Arkila described the death of the councilor as unfornate saying the incident is the handwork of saboteurs of democracy, adding; ” I want to confirm the death of a PDP councilor who was beaten to death by irate youths. l am also assuring the People of Bauchi state that the full wrath of law will catch up with the attackers, sooner than they would think”.
Though, the Bogoro council Chairperson did not give reasons for the death of the councillor who is servíng under her, it was learnt the incident was not unconnected to Saturday’s governorship and state Assembly elections, in the area.
Efforts to have the Bauchi state Police Command spokesman, DSP Haruna Mohammed to comment on the death of the Councillor was not successful as he neither responded to four text messages and several phone calls to his cell phone at the time of this report.
She however “urged the perpetrators of the inhuman act to embrace peace because violence is not a solution to political difference” noting that “the death of the councilor is a signal that the APC is afraid of losing the electoral process” charging PDP supporters not to react to the killing.
