Some gunmen have shot and killed a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, Sunday Frank-Oputu, in Bayelsa State.
It was gathered that Frank-Oputu was shot at by his assailants through the window of his residence around Bay-Bridge Road in Yenagoa in the early hours of Wednesday.
Frank-Oputu, from Southern Ijaw Local Government Area, was a former state chairman of the Conference of Nigerian Political Parties.
He was also a founding member of the APC in Bayelsa State.
He also belonged to the APC faction in the state loyal to a former Minister of State for Agriculture and Rural Development, Senator Heineken Lokpobiri.
Before his murder, Frank-Oputu was said to be involved in political tussles and some ongoing intra-party litigations rocking the state chapter of the APC.
