He died four days after being shot by suspected assassins.
A former chairman of the Dekina Local Government Area in Kogi, Adejo Akowe, is dead.
The former council boss was reportedly hospitalised after he was hit by gunshots somewhere in Ayingba.
Akowe died on Saturday morning at the National Hospital Abuja where he was being treated.
There was an attempt on Akowe’s life on the eve of the 2015 Kogi State governorship election.
