Photos of Politician’s Son beaten to death for Snatching Ballot Box

Photographs of a popular politician’s son beaten to death a few days ago for snatching a ballot box have emerged.

Mr. Yahaya Umoru, the son of a House of Representatives aspirant, was beaten to death for alleged ballot box snatching during the by-election in Kogi state over the weekend.

The deceased was killed while allegedly attempting to snatch a ballot box at a polling unit in front of the palace of the Maigarin of Lokoja.

It was gathered that pandemonium ensued when some thugs chanting “Imam must win” stormed the polling unit and attempted to snatch the ballot box at the Unit.

Some party supporters at the polling unit resisted the attempt, leading to the beating and stabbing of Yahaya Umoru.

Yahaya Umoru was the son of an APC House of Assembly aspirant for Lokoja 1 Constituency and was visible throughout the electioneering in the build-up to the election.

Police authorities in the state have vowed to apprehend the perpetrators of the dastardly act, urging the youth of the area to maintain calm as the long hand of the law will soon catch up with the murderer.
