An aide to Bayelsa State Governor, Seriake Dickson, has been killed by suspected assassins.

Ebikimi Okoringa, who was recently appointed a Special Adviser to Dickson, was shot dead at his hometown in Kolokuma-Opokuma local government area of the state.

The victim, a two-time councillor and former Acting Chairman of the LGA, was killed at about 10:00 p.m. on Monday.

A community source, who spoke in confidence, said the assailant laid ambush close to the victim’s house and shot him immediately he alighted from his car.

“They waited for him in the cover of darkness. Immediately he alighted from his car and walked towards the door, they released the first bullet.

“The bullet tore his hand but he started running to escape from the scene. The assailants chased him to a point where he fell down. They pumped many bullets into his body at a close range,” he said.

The source said the killers ensured their victim was dead before they fled the scene.
