The chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Olomu Ward 1 in Ughelli South Local Government Area of Delta State, Paul Onomuakpokpo, has been assassinated by unknown gunmen. 

YaahooJournalist reports that Delta PDP Chairman was assassinated at about  7pm on Wednesday night, January 8, after the suspected killers, reportedly laid ambush along the Ogoni-Olomu road, intercepted the party Chieftain before the Owhrode’s palace and shot him severally till he died.

It was learned that the gunmen also riddled the car he was driving in with bullets and ensured he died before they escaped while shooting sporadically to wade off probable resistance.

Meanwhile, it was, however, not clear at the time of filing this report, if the murder was politically motivated or otherwise as the police were yet to make any official statement about the murder.
