One Comrade Ovie Wisdom Iroro, in Abraka Community, Ethiope-East Local Government Area of Delta State was on Wednesday night shot dead at his residence
This was confirmed by the Ethiope-East Local Government Council Chairman, Chief(Mrs) Faith Majemite in an interaction with journalists.
Mrs Majemite said she is already working with the Divisional Police Officer in Abraka Community with a view to fishing out the masterminds of the evil act.
The victim who is in his early thirties, was said to be having a bath when the gunmen stormed his residence, dragged him to a nearby bush and shot him dead.
It was reported that the gunmen took nothing from the deceased.
Responding, the Delta State Commissioner of Police, CP Mohammed Hafiz Inuwa, on Thursday said Mr. Ovie Wisdom Iroro was a suspected cultist and fraudster.
The police boss who confirmed the death of the deceased made the assertion in a telephone chat with journalists in Warri.
While noting that Police is investigating the murder, CP Inuwa said,” Ovie was a cultist and a fraudster for that matter.
“The Division(Abraka) had arrested him several times. A crime was committed and we are after the perpetrators.
” It is after we have arrested them that we will be able to know if it is their dubious activities that made them to kill him. Who knows if they had businesses together and he was trying not to pay them their money?
“What they gathered is that they overheard somebody shouting, Am going to pay you. We don’t know. We are starting from there. CP Inuwa said.
