Mr Cyril Mudiagbe, an aide to the Deputy Senate President, Senator Ovie Omo-Agege, has been shot dead.
Mudiagbe, popularly known as Cyril Makanaki was shot dead at his house in the Decima area of Sapele between Saturday night and early Sunday, Punch reports.
Until his death, he was a member of the All Progressives Congress in Ward 6, Sapele, Delta State.
A source who spoke to the newspaper said, “The gunmen went directly to Cyril Makanaki’s apartment and instructed him to open the door for them, but he refused.
“The gunmen forcefully gained entrance by breaking the door into the apartment and shot him. This looks like an assassination because the late Cyril was not robbed of anything. He was rushed to a private hospital where the doctor on duty confirmed him dead on arrival.”
