Hoodlums killed a women leader of the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP), on Thursday, in Bayelsa state during a failed attempt by political thugs, allegedly sponsored by the All Progressives Congress (APC), to abduct a PDP chieftain, Ogoriba Watson in Bayelsa state.
The Director of Publicity of the Restoration Campaign Organisation, Jonathan Obuebite, told journalists in Yenagoa that the attackers were dressed in army uniforms. He said that the kidnap attempt was foiled by a police patrol team. He said the team had responded to a distress call and engaged the thugs in a gun duel. He stated that the deceased was killed when she was struck by a bullet fired by the thugs as they tried to escape.
