According to a source, Ogbuagu who is said to be asthmatic, had issues with his health towards the end of the party’s rally yesterday and was rushed to a nearby hospital, where he gave up the ghost.

Neither the state party chairman nor any security official has, however, issued an official statement on the sad development as of filing this report.

Meanwhile, the PDP has suspended its campaign in the Edo Central Senatorial district after heavy gunfire from alleged political rivals marred the event in ward 7 of the area.

The Eastern Updates reports that the incident on Thursday caused a commotion as party supporters ran for their lives while the Speaker of Edo State House of Assembly, Marcus Onobun, and other PDP leaders were evacuated to safer areas.

Confirming the incident, former Commissioner for Land and Survey and a leader of the PDP faction loyal to Governor Godwin Obaseki, Anslem Ojezua said the Police are handling the situation to know those responsible for the attack.
