Kogi Socio-cultural group, Ojuju Agbadufu Igala Forum (OAIF) has condemned strongly the killing of the former Chairman of Dekina Local Government Council, Hon.Akowe Adejo who was shot penultimate week, but died late yesterday at the National Hospital, Abuja.

The group suspected political thugs as behind the killing of the political leader, while lamenting that value for sacred lives no longer matter to gun wielding thugs in these days politics, particularly in Kogi East Senatorial District.

They urged politicians in Kogi to see themselves as one, saying that the Socio-cultural group is pained by the dastardly act which was described as an aberration in Igala land.

They noted: “The attack is one too many. The attack on late Adejo Akowe is an attack on all Igala sons and daughters, irrespective of political and religious differences.

“Politicians should learn to bear each other’s opinions on political matters. Democracy is not about killing; it’s not about thuggery; it’s about development of humanity through the people, who chose whoever they want to lead them.
