“The sad event took place this morning (Monday) when some unknown gunmen broke into her family residence in Manchok, Kaura LGA and shot her severally.
”Her husband was brutally shot in the leg and he is currently in an undisclosed hospital. The killers did not take any valuables in the house, suggesting assassination was the only mission of the wicked actors.

“The Zonal leadership of the Labour party in Zone 3, is bereaved at this moment. We are calling on all the members of Labour party from each polling units , wards , local government, Zonal, state and National, to pray along with us at this critical time.
“Her killing will indeed remain sad in our hearts forever but it shall not break our spirit or intimidate us from pursuing the election of the Labour Party into all elective offices in 2023. Because we truly believe that a New Nigeria is Possible under the Leadership of Peter Obi as President of Nigeria.
