An uneasy calm has enveloped Sapele, Sapele Local Government Area of Delta State as gunmen allegedly killed a Point of Sales Operator identified as Kelly Onomor.
It was gathered that the robbers stormed the deceased’s shop located along Ogodo Road by Cemetery, on Tuesday, August 10, and shot him in the head after he allegedly refused to hand over a bag containing N2,000,000 cash for the day’s business.
