A senior staff of the Delta State Polytechnic, Ogwashi-Uku, Chukwudi John, has been shot dead by unknown gunmen at Aniocha South LG of Delta state. He was killed on Wednesday at the Mega Chi Bar junction in Ogwashi-Uku.

 

This is coming barely one month after a contract staff of the polytechnic, Prince Chukwuedo, was killed on campus.

 

Report revealed that late John, also known as Mr. Biggi, was shot six times at a very close range, while leaving the bar, but nothing was taken from him. However, the circumstances that led to his murder were yet unknown.

 

Manfred Oyibode, Public Relations Officer of the polytechnic confirmed the sad incident. He said the police are already handling the matter adding that it will not be wise for him to make a categorical statement on it for now.

 

“He was not killed on the school premises. The news that filters in says the young man was just coming out from the bar when unknown persons shot him. He was not a lecturer, but a non-academic staff member of the polytechnic,” he stated.

 

The Commissioner of Police, Delta State, Adeleke Adeyinka, who also confirmed the killing, said no rest had been made, adding that information on John’s death remained scanty.
