Popular Delta Politician Dies In Police Custody Within 24hrs

A prominent politician and ex-Director General of Delta state Direct Labour Agency, Chief Lucky Ayomanor, has died while in the custody of the Nigeria police in Sapele area of the state.

Chief Ayomanor reportedly slumped and died at the hands of police operatives after he was allegedly maltreated over an allegation of being in possession of a loaded firearm on Wednesday.

According to Punch, the late politician was arrested at 9pm around the popular Gana area of Sapele while driving to pay his elder brother a visit at his home.

Chief Ayomanor was a new member of the PDP having recently decamped from the APC.

He contested the Sapele House of Assembly seat under the Labour Party in 2011 but lost to PDP.

No official statement yet from the police, with regards to what happened to him.
