Community leader Clubbed To Death By Thugs in Benin


According to daily post, The Obagienevbosa Community in Ikpoba Okha Local Government Area of Edo State was on Saturday thrown into confusion and mourning as the Chairman of the Community, Igie Osayande, was shot dead by some hoodlums.

The Community leader was attacked along with his brother Igie Obafuedo.

Though while Osayande lost his life the brother survived but was taken to a hospital where he is receiving medical attention.

Osayande, was killed by the assailant while the voting process was ongoing in Ward 9, Units 9, 10 and 11 in the community situated off Sapele road.

The hoodlums were said to have arrived the voting polling center long after accreditation was over and ordered to be accredited.

It was gathered that all efforts made by the leaders of the thugs to get accredited failed as the presiding officer said the period for accreditation was over and that voting had already started.

The leader of the thug was asked by the police on duty to leave the area and not to cause any scene.

Osayande in an effort to prevent the hoodlums from disrupting the voting exercise, accosted the thugs.

This did not go down well with other members of the gangs who clubbed him to death.

“In an attempt to resist them, the APC youth leader, Igie Osagiede, was attacked by the thugs and clubbed to death,‎” an eyewitness disclosed.
