Some yet to-be-identified gunmen have assainated Sylvester Efeurhobo, a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Delta state.
The gunmen suspected to be hired assassins invaded Sylvester Efeurhobo’s residence in Agbarho, Ughelli North Local Government Area of the State and shot him dead on Tuesday.
It was gathered that the deceased was a chairman of an APC group in the locality known as the Achievers Group in Agbarho.
Residents who spoke with reporters described Efeurhobo as “a dedicated party faithful, a brother and father, generous to the bone”.
The development has reportedly caused tension in the Delta community as party faithful called on security agencies, particularly the police, to “fish out the hooligans and ensure that justice takes its due course in the matter”.
“The perpetrators should be brought to book, as we do mourn the deceased.”
The Police Public Relations Officer for Delta State Command, DSP Bright Edafe, has since confirmed the sad development to journalists noting that three suspects have been apprehended in connection with the gruesome murder just as an investigation is ongoing.
“Confirmed, we are still investigating. So far, three suspects have been arrested,” the police mouthpiece told reporters.
