Owie Osadebamen, who happens to be the husband of Elizabeth Osadebamwen, who was fatally shot on election day for the National Assembly and the presidential elections in Edo State on February 25, has reportedly revealed why his wife went to vote, according to news that was posted online by the Punch Newspaper this morning.
When describing how they met, he stated that they did so more than ten years ago while he was employed by a commercial bank. She was a client at the time and was always chatty whenever she entered the banking hall, which led to their conversation and their ultimate September 14, 2013, marriage.
He explained why she was shot dead by saying, "When my wife went to vote for Peter Obi, she was shot and killed. She made the decision to cast her ballot this time around in order to take part in the movement to transform the nation for the better. She then proceeded to vote for Peter Obi. She voted for the first time that day."
According to him, the deceased was a member of the Obidient movement but did not, as far as he is aware, join to any support groups. However, she was a fervent supporter of Peter Obi's bid for the presidency.
