‘Mayor’ of Dikomo shot by disgruntled employee


Dikomo ‘mayor’ Yüksel Çelebi was shot by a ‘municipality’ employee and had to be taken to hospital, Turkish Cypriot media reported on Tuesday.

The armed attack followed a warning Çelebi had given employees, telling them they should follow the rules, which he had accused them of going against.

A ‘municipality’ employee appeared to be angered by this and shot the ‘mayor’.

Other employees intervened to put a stop to the fight, leading to another employee getting injured.

The ‘mayor’ was taken to hospital for an injury to his ankle while the health of both injured staffers was good.

The man, reported to be a 45-year-old, who attacked Çelebi was arrested.
