A student of Delta State Polytechnic ogwashi-uku was shot dead by suspected cultists on Thursday, August 13.
According to reports, the deceased identified as Oboh, a mass communication graduate was watching a match at a bar at Umuagu Quarters in Asaba, the state capital, when the gunmen stormed the place, went directly to where he was seated and shot him dead at close range.
“Oboh only came to watch a football match in the bar and he was drinking around 10:00pm when three gunmen came into bar and shot him four times and dragged his lifeless body outside the place.
The gunmen put off the generator set and told everyone to remain calm that they came for Oboh alone,” an eyewitness said
