Gunmen kill Okowa’s aide



Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta State yesterday expressed sadness on the tragic and untimely death of his Special Adviser on Investments, Mr. Sunday Ozege. Ozege was shot by gunmen on Tuesday on the Benin bypass and left to die in the pool of his blood.


The circumstances surrounding his gruesome murder could not be explained. In a condolence message signed by his Chief Press Secretary (CPS), Charles Aniagwu, the governor commiserated with the Ozege family of Ogume in Ndokwa West Local Government Area, describing the deceased as a very hard working and easy going man. Okowa said Ozege, at various times, served the state in various committees and was a strong pillar of support to his administration.

He said: “I was shocked to hear of the tragic death of Mr. Sunday Ozege in the hands of suspected gunmen on the Benin by-pass in Edo State. He will be missed by thousands of people whom he had assisted in one way or the other. His role in politics and the development of his community and state will remain an inspiration for other political actors.”


The governor urged Ozege’s family, members of the State Executive Council, close associates and the people of Ogume community, where the deceased hailed from, to take solace in God.
