Hon. Adjekpovu died a week after he was allegedly shot by suspected herdsmen on his way back from a function along the Eku/Abraka road.

Multiple sources disclosed that the suspected herdsmen blocked the Eku-Abraka road at about 5:30pm and fired several bullets into the councilor’s car that ended up in the politician’s abdomen.

The lawmaker, who represented the people of Ward 17 Ovu-Inland, was said to have died in a hospital where was receiving medical treatment in Warri.

The Council was thrown into a state of mourning in the early hours of Thursday, December 16, when the news filtered into the area that the lawmaker is dead.
