A councillor representing Ward 6 in the Sagbama Local Government Area of Bayelsa State, Mr Karma Agagowei has been killed by unknown gunmen.
Agagowei was shot at Opolo area of Yenagoa, the state capital, while returning from the ward congress of the Peoples Democratic Party on Saturday.
It was gathered that, the victim was rushed to two hospitals in Yenagoa, but was allegedly not treated due to the absence of a police report. So, he died after losing so much blood.
It was learnt that one person, who was with the deceased in a commercial tricycle at the time of the incident, was also attacked with machetes by the hoodlums. He, however, escaped with wounds.
The late Agagowei was among the 105 councillors, who were elected during the state local government council election in August last year.
