Description
A man identified as George Sibo reportedly died Sunday afternoon in Twon-Brass, headquarters of the Brass Local Government Area of Bayelsa State after he was allegedly attacked by a mob.

It was learnt that the deceased was attacked at the governorship election collation centre at the council area headquarters when results from some wards in Constituency 2 were being submitted.

Sibo, popularly called “Kobo-Kobo” was said to be an indigene of Twon-Brass and an aide to a politician from the local government.

A member of the state House of Assembly representing Brass Constituency 1, Daniel Charles, condemned the killing.
He urged security agents to immediately arrest and prosecute the perpetrators.

Charles wondered why those who aspire to govern would take pleasure in violence.

When contacted, the state Police Public Relations Officer, Asinim Butswat, said he was awaiting details from the area commander in Brass Local Government Area.
