A man identified as George Sibo has been reportedly murdered on Sunday afternoon in Twon-Brass, headquarters of the Brass Local Government Area.
He was attacked by a mob believed to be supporters of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
It was learnt that the deceased, who is a supporter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) was attacked at the governorship election collation centre at the council area headquarters when results from some wards in constituency 2 were being submitted.
Sibo, popularly called “Kobo-Kobo” was said to be an indigene of Twon-Brass and an aide to a politician from the local government.
A member of the state House of Assembly representing Brass Constituency 1, Daniel Charles, condemned the gruesome killing of the man.
He urged security agents to immediately arrest and prosecute the perpetrators of the dastardly act.
Charles wondered why those who aspire to govern would take pleasure in violence.
When contacted, the Police Public Relations Officer, Asinim Butswat, said he is awaiting details from the area commander in Brass local government.
“I’m awaiting details from the Area Commander Brass”, he said.
