Gunmen In Military Uniform Kill PDP Chieftain

Gunmen In Military Uniform Kill PDP Chieftain

Gunmen allegedly dressed in military camouflage have shot dead a youth’s leader and chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Bayelsa State, Hon. Odeinyefa Ogbolosingha.

Ogbolosingha, 53, was an Administrative Officer in Bayelsa State Civil Service and Secretary, Okordia/Zarama Cluster Development Board.

He was said to be killed a few hours after discharging his ailing wife from the hospital.

The incident, which occurred along the Mechanic Village area along Edepie-Imiringi road in Yenagoa, the the state capital, led to pandemonium in the area.

It was learnt attempts by angry youths of the community to create a blockade and slow down the escape of the assailants failed.

Some of the residents, who spoke on the development, expressed concerns over the increasing cases of violent killings and kidnapping being perpetrated by gunmen usually dressed in military uniforms with tinted cars.

They called on the military authorities to salvage their image by assisting the police to stem the ugly trend.

It was gathered the gunmen, who were three and dressed in military uniforms with masks, stormed Imiringi road by Block Industry Street and shot their victim in the head and other parts of his body at a close range.

It was also gathered that Ogbolosingha’s murder may not be unconnected with the raging communal crisis in his community in Kalaba in Okordia/Zarama area which led to the killing of two of their prominent leaders recently.

Spokesman for the Bayelsa Police Command, Asinim Butswat, a Superintendent of Police, confirmed the incident.

He stated: “Police operatives responded to a distress call at about 1400 hours on Friday 22 July 2022, that armed men shot one Odeinyefa Ogbolosingha at his residence at Imiringi road, Yenagoa.

“The victim was rushed to the Federal Medical Centre (FMC) Yenagoa for treatment, but was confirmed dead by doctors on arrival at the hospital. Police have commenced Investigation into the murder.”
