Gunmen suspected to be assassins on Saturday killed the Councilor representing Ward 6 Sagbama Council of Bayelsa state, Karma Agagowei.

The councilor was killed along Opolo on his way back from the Peoples Democratic Party ward congress.

The deceased who was said to have been rushed to Gloryland Hospital and Federal Medical Centre, Yenagoa, was denied treatment for lack of police report.

He died shortly afterwards.

Another person, who was with the councilor in a commercial tricycle at the time of the incident, was attacked with machetes by the hoodlums but fled with the injury.

When contacted, the Bayelsa police spokesman, Anisim Butswat, said he is yet to be briefed.
