The Deputy President of the Senate, Ike Ekweremadu has said he narrowly escaped suspected assassination attempt yesterday.
Ekweremadu in a statement by his media aide, Uche Anichukwu said the attempt occurred at about 10:00am between Apo Flyover and Dantata Construction Company’s yard, close to the Old Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) Headquarters junction on his way to the National Assembly.
He said the suspected assassins operated in an unmarked, tinted, brand new, white-coloured Mercedez Benz AMG E63 and were chauffeured by a man who looked like a Middle-Easterner.
“The vehicle, which was positioned by the Apo Bridge, on noticing that the Deputy President of the Senate’s convoy took the right turn to join the Nnamdi Azikiwe expressway instead, made a turn and attempted to ram into the convoy, but was blocked.
“The driver, however, sped off to the Apo Roundabout and on sighting the convoy of the Deputy President of the Senate, violently broke into the convoy and made several frantic attempts to ram into the Senator’s official car,” the statement reads.
He said the development had already been reported to the security agencies.
