Special Assistant on Youth Development to Governor Ifeanyi Okowa, Mr Lawrence Ngozi Akpomiemie, has been reportedly shot dead.

Akpomiemie, popularly known as Ngozi was reportedly shot dead by gunmen in the volatile Ekpan community in Uvwie Local Government Area of Delta State on Friday.

It was learnt that the deceased was ambushed by arms wielding youths while returning from an outing with a lady suspected to be his girlfriend.

Prior to his appointment by Okowa in 2016, Ngozi was standing trial for sundry crimes, including murder, but was controversially released from prison before being appointed SA on Community and Youth Affairs to the governor.

His murder last night was the latest in a bloody chapter which has seen a spike in insecurity in Ekpan and Jakpa Road areas of Uvwie LGA.

It would be recalled that at least six persons were killed in the area in the last couple of weeks in the latest upsurge of violence before the botched February 16 general elections.
