Breaking: Shot Bayelsa Govt House Photographer not dead

The Photographer attached to Bayelsa State Government House, Reginald Dei, is not dead but in critical condition contrary to earlier reports.

Dei was reported dead on Saturday after he was shot at close range in Oweikorogha, Southern Ijaw Local Government Area of the state.

Sources said Dei, who was a popular photographer, was shot by troops of the Joint Task Force (JTF), Operation Delta Safe.

But JTF immediately refuted the allegations saying its troops were not involved in any skirmishes in the local government area during the election.

Investigations, however, revealed that Dei was gasping for breath and battling for survival at an undisclosed hospital in Yenagoa, the state capital.
