A candidate to be governor in Nigeria's main city of Lagos has been killed in what police said on Thursday could be a political assassination, the latest sign of rising violence ahead of general elections next year. Funso Williams of the ruling People's Democratic Party (PDP) was killed on Wednesday night at his Lagos home, police said. "He was strangled in his study by unknown persons last night," federal police spokesman Haz Iwendi said. Four policemen guarding the residence have been arrested.|
"We are not ruling out any possibilities, we are not looking only at political assassination, we are looking at all strands," Iwendi said by telephone from the capital Abuja.
