Less than 72 hours after a reporter with the African Independent Television(AIT) Miss Onisofie Owei survived after she was attacked and shot in Yenagoa, a former Commissioner, Mr. Ayakeme Masa has been shot dead by suspected gunmen.

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.
