The Action Democratic Party (ADP), Lagos Chapter has condemned the assassination Chairman of ADP, Jos East in Plateau State, Josiah Waziri Fursum, by men of the underworld last night.
This was contained in a Press Release signed by Prince Adelaja Adeoye the Publicity Secretary of Action Democratic Party (ADP), Lagos Chapter.
“As a party that preaches politics without violence, we condemn such acts of brutality in its entirety and it is saddening that some elements still continue to carry out actions that are capable of destabilizing our democracy and our nation. Our collective will shall prevail against these Thrasymachyan ideals in politics”
The Statement further says that the members of the Party are mourning with the family, friends and political associates of the slain Chieftain.
“The entire leadership and members of ADP Lagos are in mourning with his family, his friends, political associates including his many followers across Plateau state over this shocking development”
The Party therefore calls on the Inspector of Police to order for an investigation immediately to bring the perpetrators of this gruesome crime to book.
“We call on the Inspector General of police to act immediately and bring the perpetrators to book. The actors in this gruesome murder of our chieftain must not be allowed to go scot free as it will send a very bad signal in the run up of the so many elections coming up around the country. The capture of his killers will send a strong message to others who plan such atrocities”
