INEC COLLATION OFFICER SHOT IN BENUE IS DEAD

The local government collation officer for Gboko Local Government Area, Comfort Dooshima, who was shot by unknown gunmen in Makurdi, the Benue State capital is dead.

Ms Doshima, a professor and lecturer at the University of Agriculture was on her way to the INEC headquarters, Makurdi, to present results of the just concluded governorship supplementary election from the local government.

She was rushed to the Benue State University Teaching Hospital, Makurdi where she eventually gave up the ghost.

Benue was one of five states where supplementary governorship elections were held on Saturday. The others are Sokoto, Plateau, Bauchi and Kano.

In all the five states, the contest was keenly contested between the APC and the PDP.

May her soul rest in peace.
