Speaker Dogara mourns slain Oyo lawmaker

The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Mr.Yakubu Dogara says the assassination of a member of the House Mr. Olatoye Temitope Sugar, in Oyo State during the election is highly condemnable and inhuman.

In a statement Speaker Dogara said the election is not a war and should be for service to God and country, but  never a  conquest with the barrel of the gun.

Speaker Dogara explained that the rate of killings,  thuggery, ballot snatching, voter suppression and other forms of electoral malpractices  in these elections portend great danger to our democracy and the survival of the Nigerian nation.

The Speaker called on the Security Agents to fish out and bring to book the killers of Mr.Temitope Sugar and all those who lost their lives in election related violence.
Speaker Dogara called on President Muhammadu Buhari to set up a commission to investigate these killings with a view to making the perpetrators face the wrath of the law.

He condoled the family, the people and government of Oyo state for the huge loss.
