Former Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe was killed while giving a speech during a campaign in the city of Nara.
The 67-year-old held the positions of president of the Liberal Democrat Party from 2012 to 2020 and prime minister of Japan from 2006 to 2007.
He was shot twice in the neck and chest, according to the BBC, and after collapsing, was taken to the hospital where he was tragically pronounced dead five hours later.
The alleged shooter was detained on the spot and is a person in his 40s. He has acknowledged using a handmade gun to shoot the lawmaker because he was upset with “a specific organization.”
Let’s examine Shinzo’s net worth in 2022 as praises to him flood social media.
What is Shinzo Abe’s net worth?
The former prime minister, according to Celebrity Net Worth, had a $10 million net worth at the time of his passing.
He accumulated this through a fruitful political career. The longest-serving prime minister in the history of the nation is Abe.
Abe, who was born in Tokyo in 1954, came from a well-known political family and completed his bachelor’s degree in political science before emigrating to the US to pursue a career in public policy in California.
Prior to becoming the head of the Liberal Democrat Party, he was elected to the House of Representatives in the 1993 election and named Chief Cabinet Secretary by Prime Minister Junichiro Koizumi in September 2005.
Then, in 2006, he was chosen to be prime minister, but owing to medical issues, he was obliged to step down. He mounted a political comeback and ran for governor again in 2012 after recovering.
