Unknown gunmen have killed a policeman identified as Sergeant Oisa Monday Ehigie, the police orderly to the Chairman of Ikpoba-Okha local government area, Dr. Eric Osayande.
Late Ehigie was shot dead on Saturday night at Nomayo Junction along Upper Sokponba road in Ikpoba-Okha local government.
His killings might be connected to the on-going cult war in Benin City in which several persons have been killed in different parts of the State.
State Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosun, who confirmed the killing said he has visited family of the slain policeman, adding that efforts were on to arrest the killers.
This is coming two days after gunmen abducted a candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Edo State , Mr Michael Ohio – Ezomon and shot dead his police orderly.
Ohio – Ezomon is a former member of the state House of Assembly and represented the Owan West Constituency between 2011 and 2015, and is currently seeking a return to the House in the forthcoming elections. The abductors are yet to demand for ransom.
