Gunmen have shot a politician, identified simply as Ekpo, to death in the Agboju area of Lagos State.

It was gathered that Ekpo, who until his death, was also a member of the National Union of Road Transport Workers, was at a rally of the All Progressives Congress when the gunmen invaded the rally on Thursday and shot him dead.

It was learnt that residents, passersby, traders, customers, and other members involved at the rally scampered for safety when Ekpo was attacked.

Jimoh Buhari, spokesman for the chairman, NURTW, Musiliu Akinsanya [a.k.a Oluomo], confirmed the circumstances surrounding Ekpo’s death, adding, “He was protecting a fellow politician, Wale Yusuf, from harassment when the gunmen shot him dead.”

The state Police Public Relations Officer, Muyiwa Adejobi, said he would return our correspondent’s call, but he had yet to do so as of the time this report was filed.  (Text excluding headline from The PUNCH)
