2 lawyers found dead inside vehicle in Delta

29 March 2014, 15:41

Abuja - The police command in Delta has commenced investigations into the death of two lawyers inside a vehicle at Ozoro, near Warri.

The Public Relations Officer of the command, DSP. Celestina Kalu, told reporters in Warri on Friday that it was too early to determine the cause of the death.

"Investigation is still on because they were found dead inside a vehicle."

Kalu said the bodies had been deposited in a hospital in Warri, adding that autopsy would be conducted to ascertain the cause of death.

A reliable source told newsmen that the lawyers, Horis Dafiaghor and Samuel Ekuwangju, were found dead inside a vehicle.

The source alleged that the deceased were on their way to court for a high profile case when they were waylaid and killed by hired assassins.

It said that the deceased were both of Whytfort Jurisconsult Chambers of at No 81 Udu Road, Ovwian in the Udu Local Government Area of Delta.

However, the Warri Chapter of the NBA is holding a crucial meeting on the matter.

Some colleagues of the deceased described the duo as easy going and intelligent lawyers.

Oghenejabor Ikimi, the National Coordinator of the Forum for Justice and Human Rights Defence, described the incident as very unfortunate.
