The People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Benue State Chapter has described as barbaric and unacceptable the murder of Torkuma Amaa-Bai, son of the National Ex-Officio member of the party, Prince Vincent Yandev Amaabai Sunday in Gboko.
Torkuma, who is the first son of his father and an active member of the PDP, was shot death by unknown gunmen who trailed him to a location in the town at about 10 pm in the presence of onlookers.
Confirming the incident, the bereaved father, Prince Amaa Bai, lamented the tragedy wondering why anyone would want to visit such evil on his family.
In a statement signed by the publicity secretary of the Benue PDP Hon Bemgba Iprtyom and made available to The Nation, called on security agencies to fish out the killers of the son of PDP chieftain.
The statement reads in part: “While it is yet early for us to draw any conclusions about the unfortunate incident, we nevertheless, demand that security agencies must act with dispatch and fish out the perpetrators of this crime.
“Prince Amaa-Bai, national official of our great party was also appointed to serve as the Director of Security and Intelligence on the State Campaign Organisation of the party in Benue in the just concluded elections.”
