The All Progressives Congress (APC) has condemned the post-election violence reported in Kogi state which led to the death of a Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) woman leader, Salome Abuh and destruction of property in the state.
The party, has however, consoled with the family of the deceased and others affected by the post-election violence.
In a statement signed Wednesday in Abuja by the party’s spokesman, Lanre Issa-Onilu, urgedrge the Kogi people to ensure this does not escalate.
“We are aware that the Kogi State Governor Yahaya Bello has already directed law enforcement agencies to fish out the perpetrators.
“The APC abhors violence and other criminalities which sadly continue to plague our electioneering process. We urge partisans to see election as a democratic contest and not a do or die affair that we pay with our lives. We pray that the culprits are caught and the full weight of the law is brought to bear on them.
“President Muhammadu Buhari has advised partisans that are not satisfied with the results of governorship elections in Kogi and Bayelsa states to seek redress in court and shun violence. We must all heed this call.”
