Gunmen assassinate ex-militant leader, Ogede, in Bayelsa

Gunmen in military fatigue have shot dead an ex-militant leader, Indukapo Ogede, in Yenagoa, Bayelsa State.

An ex-militant leader and head of operations of Darlon Oil and Gas Servicing Limited, Indukapo Ogede, has been assassinated in Yenagoa, Bayelsa state capital.

Ogede was said to have been killed in an execution manner, Sunday night, at a hotel off Tamic road, in Okutukutu, where he usually stayed whenever he visited Yenagoa.

His assailants, armed and wearing military uniform, were said to have driven into the hotel Sunday afternoon, and paid for three rooms ostensibly as a decoy of their real motive.

A source at the hotel said they later went to the beer to drink, while waiting for their target to return from an assignment he went to town to execute.

However, some people close to the deceased at the hotel suspected something was amiss with the behaviour of the suspected assassins, and decided to alert him on phone, but he did not pick his call as he was driving to the hotel.

A witness stated that on sighting his car entering the premises, they ran towards him and shot him twice.

The gunshot caused pandemonium in the hotel and the area, as the people scampered for safety, while the gunmen made their way to escape.

Ogede was rushed to the Glory Land Hospital, Opolo, where he was confirmed dead, and his body moved to the Federal Medical Centre, Yenagoa.

A visit to the scene, yesterday, indicated that police detectives had been to the hotel to take questions from the management and those who witnessed the shooting.

The Chairman, Darlon Oil and Gas Limited, Chief Levi Wilson, in a statement to confirmed the assassination of Ogede, appealed to the various law enforcement agencies to investigate the killing and bring the perpetrators of the dastardly act to book, in a bid to ensure that such incident does not repeat itself in the nearest future.

Wilson described the death as one too many, regretting that the deceased left behind his parents, wife and children.

Meanwhile, the Bayelsa State Police Command, through its spokesman, Asinim Butswat, has appealed for calm, stating that the police were already investigating.
