A special assistant to Delta State Governor Ifeanyi Okowahas been shot dead by hoodlums.
Lawrence Akpomiemie, special adviser on youth development, was reportedly shot dead at 10pm by gunmen at Ekpan in the Uvwie Local Government Area of the state on Friday.
Ni fewer than 10 persons have been killed so far. Also, scores of persons have been injured and maimed in the crisis.
Akpomiemie was ambushed by arms-wielding youths while returning from an outing with a lady suspected to be his girlfriend.
He was shot in the chest and on the forehead repeatedly. The lady survived the attack.
Investigations linked Ngozi’s murder to the lingering political crisis in Ekpan between supporters of the Peoples Democratic Party and the All Progressives Congress.
Ngozi and his followers are said to be staunch supporters of the state governor and the ruling PDP in the state.
Chairman of Uvwie LGA, Mr Ramson Onoyake, confirmed the killing.
“The police have started investigating the matter,” Onoyake said.
Acting spokesman for the Delta State Police Command, Mr Chuks Oresewezie, confirmed the incident.
