Assassination Along Wogu Street D/Line

16:30 Mar 6 2015 Port Harcourt, Port-Harcourt, Rivers, Nigeria

Description
A yet to be identified man was shot in front of the Rivers State secretariat of the Niger Delta Development Commission, along Wogu Street, D/Line. Eyewitnesses said the man was coming out of the secretariat when an unidentified vehicle pulled up to him and someone shot at him several times from close range, before the car drove away. The man was rushed to a nearby hospital where he was said to have died a short while later.

Analysis: There is a steady increase in the number of assassinations, reported and unreported, in the wake of the pre-election tensions between the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the All Peoples Congress (APC) in Rivers State. There is a high probability that non-party elements would use these tensions as a smokescreen to settle old and new scores.This will in turn create new tensions and conflicts, some of which would be cult related and eventual politically motivated.
