Gunmen have shot dead a councillorship candidate in the forthcoming local government elections, in Delta State, Mr. Elliot Offa.

The gunmen also abducted two others who were with the deceased at the time of the incident.

The incident occurred along the Jesse/Oben road, a boundary between Delta and Edo States.

It was learnt that the deceased and the two others were returning from the Office of the Delta State Independent Electoral Commission, DSIEC, Asaba when the gunmen ambushed, shot sporadically and killed the deceased.

The deceased was the immediate past Supervisory Councillor on Environment of Ethiope-West Local Government Council.

When contacted, the Delta State Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Onome Onovwakpoyeya confirmed the report saying,”They said it happened in Edo State, not Delta State.”
