Former Kaduna Central lawmaker, Senator Shehu Sani has expressed fear after some unknown gunmen on Thursday killed some staff of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in Imo State.
Sani speaking on Friday condemned the attack and called for a common stand against the attackers.
His position follows the killing of the INEC official identified as Mr. Nwokorie Anthony who was gunned down during the Continuous Voter Registration Exercise (CVR) exercise in Ihitte Uboma Local Government Area of the state.
It was gathered that INEC has suspended the exercise following the killings.
Speaking on the incident, the Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC), Prof. Emeka Ezeonu, said Nwokorie was killed at Nkwo Ihitte (PU 004) in Amakohia Ward (RA 02) of Ihitte Uboma LGA.
Taking to his Twitter account to react to the development, Senator Sani wrote: “The attack on the INEC registration center and the killing of the INEC staff by those terrorist gunmen in Imo state is condemnable. That act of criminality & the video footage was meant to spray fear, but should rather galvanize collective outrage & defiance against them.”
