Former Kogi council chair dies


A former chairman of the Dekina Local Government Area in Kogi State, Adejo Akowe, is dead.

He died four days after being shot by suspected assassins.

The former council boss was reportedly hospitalised after he was hit by gunshots somewhere in Ayingba.

Akowe gave up the ghost Saturday morning at the National Hospital Abuja, where he was later taken to for better medical attention.

There was an earlier attempt on Akowe’s life on the eve of the 2015 Kogi State governorship election.
