The Oredo Ward 5 chairman of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Edo State, Mr. Tunde Igbinoba who slumped and died after armed thugs the party’s congress will be laid to rest this weekend in Benin City, the State Capital.
Suspected political thugs attacked the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) parallel primary for Oredo Federal Constituency primaries on May 23rd 2022 and shot sporadically to disrupt the exercise.
The 65-year-old man who was at the primaries venue during the attack, was said to have slumped and died afterwards arising from shock.
The party’s Congress nonetheless produced Mr. Omoregie Ogbeide-Ihama, the incubent federal lawmaker, representing Oredo Federal Constituency.
The exercise which started peacefully on airport road in Benin City, ended in tragedy after gunmen shielded in branded vests, unleashed terror on the venue and vandalized vehicles and other valuable assets.
It remains unclear if Ogbeide-Ihama would attend Igbinoba’s funeral Ceremony which would be conducted in a low key, according to a family source.
The Police authorities in the State had said no death was recorded at the primary.
