Two men appeared dead on Monday in Azikoro suburb of Yenagoa, as gunmen rained bullets on them in their car around 10.30 am.
An eye witness said that the assailants, driving a car behind the victims’ car, suddenly overtook it and shot the occupants.
Not satisfied, the suspected assassins returned after driving away for 20 metres to pump more bullets to ensure the victims were dead, the eye-witness said.
Residents of the area locked up their doors for fear of arrest.
At the scene, policemen, led by the DPO of Azikoro Police Station, Rita Green, were seen removing the two bodies into a police van.
The state Police Public Relations Officer, Mr Fidelis Odunna, confirmed the incident on telephone and said investigation was underway.
The police later towed the bullet-riddled car to their station. (NAN)
