Ruling party National Resistance Movement (NRM) have eulogized murdered party cadre Ibrahim Abiriga.

The Arua Municipality MP was on Friday evening gunned down with his bodyguard by unknown assailants near his home in Kawanda.

According to the Party’s Communications Officer Rogers Mulindwa, Abiriga has been a staunch member of NRM whose loyalty to the Party was well known to all concerned. He hasn’t only been a loyal member but supportive to all initiatives of government.

The Secretary General of NRM Justine Kasule Lumumba has described the incident by these brutal assassins as being a ‘big robbery to the Party’

“We are robbed of a loyal cadre of NRM and an open minded legislator. I pray that the security agencies trace these assassins and bring them to face the law. We shall grately miss him”, said the SG.
