Unknown gunmen have shot dead a prominent chief of Ughievwen Kingdom in Ughelli South Local Government Area of Delta State, Emmanuel Bikogha.
According to Punch Newspapers, the prominent chief was attacked at the popular PTI junction in Effurun, Uvwie Local Government Area, Sunday night, at about 7:10pm.
Speaking on the incident, Chief Freeborn Ayoma, a palace colleague to the deceased, confirmed the gory incident to journalists on Monday morning.
However, the detail of what might have led to the killing of Bikogha by the yet-to-be-identified gunmen are still sketchy.
Bikogha, who hailed from the Owawha town in Ughievwen Kingdom, was described by some community members as a happily married, humble and honest gentleman who would be missed by the Ughievwen people for his humility and peaceful conduct.
