OMG!!! Gunmen Shoot Jonathan’s Official Photographer



Mr. Callistus Ewelike, who is President Goodluck Jonathan’s official photographer, was on Monday night shot at a close range in front of his house, between 10pm and 11pm by unknown gunmen in Abuja.

Callistus was returning to his house after filing the photographs he took during Jonathan’s visit to Shape Community in the FCT, where the President inaugurated the Operation Light Up Rural Nigeria Project when the incident happened.

The two men were apparently waiting for him at his residence. While one of them was on the motorbike, the guy who pulled the trigger was standing, waiting for him.

As he parked his car and was making his way into his house, the armed man shot him in the neck. The gunshot attracted some residents of the area, so the two men quickly sped off on the motorbike. No personal belonging was stolen from the victim. Ewelike was rushed by his neighbours to the National Hospital, Abuja,

A source in the hospital said the x-ray conducted on the photographer showed that the bullet that entered through his neck was lodged at a spot close to his shoulder. Armed men had also visited Ewelike’s residence few weeks back. They left with his working tools, including his camera and a laptop and a few other personal effects.


Investigations are already underway by security agents.

May God help us in 2015 oo!
