The Chairman of All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ohimini Local Government Area of Benue State, Boniface Okloho has been assassinated by yet-to-be known gunmen.

Daily Trust reports that the deceased was killed on Friday night, eve of the postponed Presidential and National Assemblies election in Ohimini while he was on his way back home from a party function.

APC’s State Publicity Secretary, James Ornguga, simply confirmed the assassination of Okloho, adding, that the party would speak about the murder after its scheduled meeting at a later date.

“The APC chairman of Ohimini LGA, Boniface Okloho was assassinated on the election eve,” Orgunga stated.

At the time of this report, however, the police was yet to respond to calls by our correspondent to comment on the matter.
