Abuh also solicited financial assistance to rebuild the family four houses that were burnt during the unfortunate incident.

“Is it possible for one person to commit such magnitude of destructions of life and properties in our compound and other key PDP stakeholders houses in the community within such a few hours?
“Kogi State Police Command paraded six boys, including Edicha who were said to have confessed to the crime.
“Surprisingly, five were charged for armed robbery and only Edicha became the murderer and arsonist. Police is our Friend, Police is their Friend,” Abuh said.
