A former member of the House of Representatives for Jos South East Federal Constituency, Dachung Musa Bagos has claimed that four people in his constituency died because he was sacked by the Appeal Court on Tuesday, Nov. 7.
The former lawmaker made the claim during an appearance on Channels TV Politics Today on Thursday, Nov. 9.
He said his sack was like a military coup and that people had begun to lose hope in the judicial system.
Bagos disclosed that one of those that died was a woman with a baby who slumped after hearing the news.
According to him, “What happened was just like a military coup. From the reaction you are just seeing from the street after sacking seven National Assembly members through the court and all of them are from the PDP, you will know that all of us won our elections with different margins. Mine was sixty-something thousand.
“Four people died because of the shock. A woman was holding a baby when she heard the news.
“She slumped and was rushed to a hospital and she died. She had high BP. There was a shock on our side.”
