By Kelvin Ohoror

Tension has gripped Orhuwhorun Community in Udu Local Government Area of Delta State as gunmen shot dead a popular building materials merchant in the area and reportedly abducted his son.

The incident reportedly occurred around Usiefurun Junction at about 9 pm on Saturday, as the attackers numbering about five, stormed the area in a Toyota Sienna, shot and killed Francis Tefue, the popular trader. Tefue’s son, Sam, who was with him during the attack was reportedly abducted by the assailants.


It was gathered that the gunmen shot sporadically into the air during the operation which lasted about thirty minutes before they eventually drove off towards Usiefurun Road, with the abducted son of the deceased.

It was also gathered that the slain merchant only a few months ago added a Point of Sales(POS) service to his business venture. Grief-stricken residents of Orhuwhorun Community were left bewildered by the sad news, as many of them were seen discussing the development in hush tones

When contacted, the Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) of the Delta State Command, DSP Bright Edafe, confirmed the killing.

He, however, said that the son was not kidnapped, saying, “Killed father, yes, but the son was not abducted. They came to rob him, he operates a POS shop.”
