At least three out of the 13 delegates from Mariga local government areas of Niger State for the governorship primaries have been allegedly killed by bandits.



Naijacrawl learnt that the incident occurred between Mariga and Tegina and the three people were shot dead on the spot in an ambush by the Bandits on Wednesday.

They were killed on their way back to Mariga after the party postponed the primaries to obtain their means of identification, following a protest by some of the aspirants who were not comfortable with the delegate list.

Against this backdrop, delegates were asked to return home and bring their means of identification, and the primaries shifted to Thursday.

The victims were two women and a male, whose identities were not revealed.

The Chairman of the state electoral panel and Deputy Governor of Bayelsa State, Mr. Lawrence Ewhrudjakpo, who made the disclosure at the state party secretariat, described the incident as sad.

Ewhrudjakpo also asked all the aspirants for the replacement of the three deceased delegates, which they agreed to after a brief discussion.

He afterwards ordered a minute of silence to be observed for the deceased.
