A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, Benson Omunakwe, has been shot dead by gunmen in Port Harcourt.
Omunakwe was killed at Agip Estate in Port Harcourt on Wednesday night.
The gunmen were said to have driven into the estate where he lived and shot their victim.
Omunakwe was a former aspirant to the House of Assembly. He was reportedly killed while he was returning home at about 8.45pm.
A relative of the deceased, Okechukwu Benson, said he was watching football when he received a call that his brother’s son had been shot.
“I had a call at about 9pm that they had shot my brother’s son at Estate. He had no problem with anybody that could warrant his killing,” Okechukwu said.
