Nigeria: Herdsmen reportedly run away with Adamawa state PDP chairman’s head.

Suspected Fulani herdsmen have beheaded the Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party in  Bare ward in the Numan Local Government Area, Adamawa State, Charles Chrisanthus,

The politician was reportedly killed in the presence of his wife, Dorcas, in his farm on August 29, 2018.



The widow of the slain PDP chieftain is, however, accusing the police of shielding the killers of her husband.

She said she was holding her four-month old son and watched helplessly as the assailants hacked her husband to death.

“His attackers led by our Fulani neighbours repeatedly stabbed him on the back and on his stomach before beheading my husband in our farm and made away with his head,” she said.

Claiming to have made some arrests, the police has invited the widow of the slain ward chairman and three other female witnesses to the state Criminal Investigation Department for their statements.

It was at the CID that the families of the deceased were alerted to the whereabouts of the suspected killers.

The bereaved families, it was learnt, discovered that some of the suspects arrested in connection with the killing were receiving medical attention at an undisclosed hospital.

“The police under the guise of allowing the suspects to seek medical attention are shielding those that killed my husband. The only thing I want is justice,” she stated.
