An aide to Delta State governor Ifeanyi Okowa, Lawrence Ngozi Akpomiemie, has been shot dead by unknown persons.
It was learnt that Ngozi was ambushed by his assailants while returning from an outing with his girlfriend Friday night.
It was further gathered that he was repeatedly shot on his chest and head as the hoodlums were said to have waited until their target gave up the ghost before leaving.
It could not be confirmed however, at the time of filing this report, if the deceased female acquaintance was also killed by the hoodlums.
Until his death, Akpomiemie was the special assistant to Okowa on youth development.
Delta State Police Command election situation room confirmed the report.
The cause of the violence that led to his death was yet to be ascertained at the time of filing this report
