Masa, a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) from Bayelsa West senatorial district, was a Commissioner for Investment, Trade and Industry during the first tenure administration of Governor Henry Seriake Dickson.

The 64 –year-old former commissioner and father of three was said to have been shot in the early hours of Sunday, at his residence, along Palm Avenue, behind the popular Bolex Lounge, in the state capital, but died at the Federal Medical Centre (FMC), Yenagoa, on Monday evening.
