The deceased, Adams Amakel Eguvwese
A popular hairstylist identified as Adams Amakel Eguvwese has been killed by unknown gun men in Sapele, Delta State.
It was gathered that the deceased popularly known as '10 over 10', was sitting outside his salon located along New Road at about 5:45 pm on Tuesday, December 29, when the gunman shot him.
According to an eyewitness, the gunman came in a blue Toyota Corolla car without a plate number.
“Adams was sitting outside his barbing saloon when the numberless blue Corolla came, a man holding a shotgun approached him and shot him.
Adams ran into the shop and the gunman went after him and shot him again at the entrance of his shop, before he got into the Corolla and drove away." the witness said.
A source said that Adams was rushed to the Sapele Central hospital but doctors referred them to the Delta State University Teaching Hospital. They brought him back to the salon as there was no fuel in the vehicle.
"Those who rescued him came back that there was no fuel in their vehicle and the crowd who had gathered at the scene of the incident had to raise cash for him and because Adams had lost so much blood in the process, he could not make it." the source said.
