The Manager of footballer Osaze Odemwinge’s hotel in Benin, Edo State, Osato Okunkpolo, has been shot dead.

The body of the manager, married to a journalist, Anita, who works for a local tabloid in Bénin City, has been deposited in the morgue.
Edo Police spokesman, DSP Chidi Nwabuzor, said Okunkpolo was hit by a bullet in a shoot-out between two rival cult groups, saying members of Eiye and Aye engaged in a shoot-out in the area on Sunday night.
