The lawmaker died on Thursday morning in a private hospital where he had been receiving treatment
The councillor for Ethiope-East Local Government Council in Delta State, Hon. Jude Adjekpovu has died from wounds sustained after being shot by gunmen suspected to be Fulani herdsmen.
This comes a week after Adjekpovu was allegedly shot by the gunmen along Eku/Abraka Road in Ethiope-East Local Government Area of Delta State on his way back from a function.
SaharaReporters learnt that the lawmaker died on Thursday morning in a private hospital where he had been receiving treatment since Saturday, December 4, when he was shot.
“He died this (Thursday) morning after battling for his life for over a week,” a source from the politician’s area said.
The local government councillor representing Ward 5 in Ethiope East Local Government Area had been battling for his life following the gunshot wounds he sustained from the incident.
The kidnappers suspected to be Fulani herdsmen had blocked the Eku-Abraka Road around 5:30 pm on that fateful day and fired several bullets at the councillor’s car.
He was reportedly hit in the stomach.
But when SaharaReporters called the Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) for Delta State Command, DSP Bright Edafe, he said he did “not have any information like that”.
