A photographer identified as Sunny White has been assassinated by gunmen in Sapele area of Delta State.
It was disclosed that the man was killed in front of his wife and children on Friday, 6 May.
An eyewitness while speaking to Punch said the killers came in a numberless ash colour Toyota Corolla car and shot him while he was relaxing with his kids at his wife’s store on Otomewo Road by Oboscah Lane.
He also described Mr White as a well respected young man who didn’t deserve to die in such a gruesome manner.
The eye witness said:
“He was relaxing at the shop with kids while his wife was attending to customers. White is a very respectable young man and he did not deserve to die this way,”
“With this act, it is obvious that security operatives need to step up their game in the area to stop the continuous assassination of young men,”
The reason for the murder of White is yet to be known.
The spokesperson of the police in the state, DSP Bright Edafe while speaking on the matter said the crime wasn’t reported to the command.
“The matter was not reported to the command, though there was a cult clash in the community.” Edafe said
