The Minister of State, Niger Delta Affairs, Festus Keyamo (SAN), has picked the medical bill of a supporter who was stabbed for rejoicing over the victory of Muhammadu Buhari, Nigeria’s president at the tribunal.
Eye9ja reports that the victim identified as Elvis Omoiro, was stabbed with a broken bottle after a political disagreement in Effurun, Uvwie council area of Delta State, the native area of Keyamo.
Keyamo who condemned the attack assured that justice will be served to the victim of the broken bottle attack.
Eye9ja reports that Keyamo has already reached out to the police in the area to ensure the attacker is fished out.
Keyamo revealed this via his Twitter handle on Saturday night
Omoiro was repeatedly stabbed in various parts of his body by his neighbour identified as Best Uduophori.
Omoiro was stabbed for allegedly celebrating the victory of President Buhari at the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal where he defeated his counterpart of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar.
I have already taken up this matter. I sent one of my SA’s to the hospital & asked them to send me all the medical bills. I also spoke with the victim & assured him of justice. I then contacted the DCO of Ekpan Police Station to ensure the culprit is arrested and brought to book https://t.co/EUeMqZ28EQ
