Back to the discussing subject Madam Zahada Hudu said her late husband had been using social media to highlight challenges within Ejura, particularly abandoned government projects that he believes deserve attention from state actors.
She believes his activities may have influenced some persons to attack him since he had been warned by some unknown persons prior to the attack.
Madam Zahada Hudu, who is saddened by the incident, demanded justice for her late husband.
“In the early hours of Saturday, we heard a loud noise in the house. I thought my husband was driving away goats from the house at the time. Little did I know that he was being attacked. We saw him in a pool of blood. The people bolted as soon as we opened the door to check what was happening.”
She indicated that, prior to the attack, her late husband told her he had been threatened to desist from his social media activities.
“Before the attack, he told me that someone had warned him against posting some issues on social media. I even warned him to stop since that could lead to his death but he wouldn’t listen. I know the person that issued the warning to my husband. We want the police to thoroughly conduct investigations into it to ensure the perpetrators are arrested,” she told Citi News
Meanwhile, the police in the area say they have begun investigations into the matter. They however say they have not been able to make any arrest yet.
The police are thus asking residents to assist them with information that will lead to the arrest of the perpetrators.
