A young man was assassinated by unidentified gunmen yesterday in Delta state. The deceased identified as Onome Emekeme a.k.a ‘Onome Pounds’, was said to be driving two ladies and some of his friends in a Lexus car before the assassins struck and shot him in the chest along the busy road.
It was gathered that the attackers didn’t take anything from the vehicle as they fled immediately after shooting their target dead.
The deceased was rushed to a hospital nearby before he passed away and his corpse later deposited in a mortuary.
According to one of his friends who took to Facebook to mourn the loss, Onome was allegedly killed because of gold worth N1 million , a report which has not been confirmed.
