A young man could only be given as Justice was on Thursday night shot dead by men suspected to be assassins.
According to an eyewitness account, the deceased was relaxing in front of his residence opposite Kubi Motel, along Ughelli-Patani road when the assassins came and shot him at a close range on the chest.
The mother of the deceased who also lives in the compound came out when she heard the sound of the gunshot only to see his son in the pool of his blood.
The deceased was immediately rushed to the Ughelli central hospital where he was confirmed dead by the medical doctor on duty.
Lamenting, one of his relatives who did not disclosed his name said it was painful for Justice to have died by the bullet of assassins.
He described late Justice as a humble and peaceful person, who got married late December, 2017 but said that the bullet of assassins had made his wife a widow.
Late Justice, a dealer on building materials hails from Oviri Olomu in Ughelli south local government area of the state.
Efforts made to reach the Divisional Police Office in charge of Ughelli on the incident proved abortive.
