This is coming few months after it was also reported that Bayelsa State former Commissioner for Investment, Trade and Industry, Ayekeme Masa, was shot dead by unidentified gunmen in Yenagoa, the state capital.
The late Masa served in the first tenure of Governor Seriake Dickson. Investigations revealed that the late commissioner died at the Federal Medical Centre Yenagoa where he was rushed to. Police sources disclosed that Masa, 64 and father of three, was shot at his residence along Palm Avenue behind the popular Bolex lounge in Yenagoa.
Sources disclosed further that the killers were in his sitting room having argument with his wife, when he arrived home. He was said to have walked into the argument between his wife and the unknown gunmen. His attempt to escape proved abortive as he was shot by the assailants.
One of the security men in his house told police investigators that he heard gunshots and came out of his cubicle to meet the injured body of his boss outside the gate. Masa’s killing came after reports of the shooting of a journalist attached to the Government House by suspected armed robbers.
