Senator Ovie Omo-Agege, representing Delta Central senatorial district, has condemned the murder of the All Progressives Congress, APC, ward chairmanship aspirant, Jeremiah Oghoveta, at Okwagbe, Ughelli South Local Government Area Ward 10, Delta State, for alleged political motives.
Omo-Agege, in a statement by his legislative aide, Prince Efe Duku, lamented that the allegation that the young leader and pro-Ogboru and pro-Omo-Agege grassroots mobilizer was murdered for political motives was a desecration of the sacredness of human life in Urhoboland.
Omo-Agege urged the Police authorities to carry out a thorough and speedy investigation of the murder, assuring that justice would be done.
According to him: “Whoever had a hand in Oghoveta’s murder will face the harshest consequences prescribed under the law. Also, I learnt of the near-death attacks on Chuks Erhire, Director General, Senator Omo-Agege Constituency Office, Ejiro Etaghene, media supporter of President Muhammadu Buhari, Chief Great Ogboru and Senator Omo-Agege and Julius Akpovoka, supporter of Chief Great Ogboru and Senator Omo-Agege.”
