Governor Ortom described the murder as barbaric, anti-democratic and, an act capable of derailing the electoral process in the area.
He said violence in any form has no place in a democracy, and that those who take the lives of others on account of politics were the real enemies of the state.
The governor also sympathised with the Okloho family, the people of Ohimini, as well as the leadership and members of the party in the state.
He prayed God to grant the soul of the deceased eternal rest.
