It was learnt that his killers refrained from using the gun to kill the former acting Chairman of the PDP in order not to attract the attention of his neighbours.
Two family members, Mr. Desi Tambrebofa and Mr. John Gidi, expressed shock over the manner Hobobo was brutally murdered.
They described the deceased as an easy going man, saying that the assassins had murdered sleep.
Asuquo, who had visited the scene of the crime, assured the family members that the police would fish out the perpetrators of the crime.
