Meanwhile, others are said to still be on the run.

Facts of the case presented in court show that the late Member of Parliament’s campaign team was hijacked at about 1 am on the Abeaze-Dominase and Duadze road on the Mankessim-Assufosu highway to rob them.

The robbers were said to have demanded upon stopping the campaign vehicle that the late MP identified himself.

They demanded for money and when he said he didn’t have, but suggested they took him home, so he gives them the money, they shot him and killed him.
