In his tribute, husband of the deceased, Elder Simeon Abuh, said the late Acheju had paid a supreme price for Igala land through politics, describing her as a “martyr whose political sagacity will remain fresh in the mind of her political associates.”

He called on the federal government to ensure that the perpetrators of her murder are arrested and brought to book.

The State woman leader of PDP, Olori Margaret Orebiyi described the late Salome as a lively person who can turn negative things to positive because of her commitment and versatility in politics.

She urged the children of the deceased to emulate their mother in order to continue her good legacies.

Also speaking, the only son of the deceased, David Abuh, described their mother as “a lover of people who invested much in assisting the needy ones in the society.”

He called on the federal government to ensure that justice is done over the killing of their mother.
