A popular hairstylist, Adams Amakel Eguvwese, has been shot dead in broad daylight by an unknown gunman in Sapele, Delta State.
The 42-year-old, popularly known as ’10 over 10′ (the name of his barbing salon), was reportedly sitting outside his shop along New Road at about 5:45pm on Tuesday, December 29, when the gunman shot him.
An eyewitness, who simply identified himself as Nathaniel, told Vanguard that 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.
According to reports, the now-deceased was rushed to Sapele Central hospital but was referred to the Delta State University Teaching Hospital in Oghara.
However, he was brought back to his barbing salon as there was no fuel in the vehicle, where he unfortunately gave up the ghost.
“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.
