Ola ‘Kiya, Reporting

DETAILS have emerged on how gunmen, suspected to be hired assassins on Sunday night, July 16, 2023, wasted a Ward Councillor, Nelson Sylvester, at his residence in Eha-Alumonah in Enugu State, Nigeria. 

The lawmaker, popularly known as Ofunwa, was representing Eha-Ulo Ward in the Nsukka Local Government Area Legislative Council.

The assailants reportedly stormed the councillor’s house and rained bullets on him.

Though Sylvester escaped into a neighbouring compound, his lifeless body was later recovered.

This development has, however, sparked some tension in the town and neighbouring communities.

A source described the suspected assassination as one too many.

“It is heartbreaking; it is too hard for us to swallow. We are in deep agony,” the source lamented.

The Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Enugu, DSP Daniel Ndukwe, has yet to speak on the killing.
