Unknown gunmen have shot dead the Councilor representing Ward 6 Sagbama Council Area of Bayelsa State, Karma Agagowei.
Naija News reports that he was shot while returning from a PDP ward congress in Yenagoa along Opolo on Saturday night.
According to the NAN, he was taken to two different hospitals, Gloryland Hospital and Federal Medical Centre, Yenagoa, but was allegedly denied treatment for lack of a police report.
However, the PDP chieftain died shortly afterwards.
Reports say another person, who was with him at the time of the incident, was attacked with machetes by the hoodlums but fled with the injury.
