‎The councillor representing Ward 6 in the Sagbama Local Government Area of Bayelsa State, Mr Karma Agagowei, has been assassinated by yet to be identified gunmen. ‎

It was gathered that the councillor was attacked and shot in the Opolo area of Yenagoa while returning from the ward congress of the Peoples Democratic Party on Saturday.‎

Sources disclosed that Agagowei was rushed to two hospitals in Yenagoa, but he was allegedly refused treatment due to the absence of a police report.

He eventually gave up the ghost due to the gunshot injuries sustained in the attack.

It was gathered that a‎nother person who was in a commercial tricycle with Agagowei when he was attacked also sustained injuries during the incident. ‎

Agagowei was among 105 councillors who were elected during the state local government council election in August 2019.‎
