Deputy Senate President Senator Ovie Omo-Agege has called on security agencies to fish out the killers of his legislative aide, Cyril Mudiagbe.
Senator Omo-Agege, who expressed shock over the murder, according to a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Yomi Odunuga, described Mudiagbe as a dedicated, committed staff and “grassroots loyalists who believed in the cause of a truly great Delta State.”
He added that “he (Cyril) did his utmost best to contribute towards the realisation of that dream, working with other legislative aides in my office.”
Popularly known as Makanaki, Cyril was reported to have been shot dead in his house at the weekend in Sapele Local Government Area of Delta State.
The Delta Central lawmaker prayed God to give the family the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss.
“I received, with shock and sadness, news of the brutal homicidal attack on Cyril, popularly known as Makanaki.
“Till the very end, Cyril was one of our grassroots loyalists who believe in the cause of a truly great Delta State and he did his utmost best to contribute towards the realisation of that dream, working with other legislative aides in my office.
“As the news broke, It took me no time to call upon the police and our various security agencies to urgently begin to take all necessary actions towards unravelling this saddening mystery with the aim of bringing the evildoers to book,” Omo-Agege was quoted as saying.
