The hoodlums were thugs of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) working under the instructions of Governor Olusegun Mimiko.
One vehicle of the Deputy Governor was stoned and fired upon with guns, while the windscreen was also attacked during the process.
“They shot the convoy of Baba [Alhaji Ali Olanusi)] at the Fiwaseye roundabout and broke the windscreen of one of his vehicle,” an eyewitness told SaharaReportrs.
“Immediately they shot at the convoy as they entered into the Secretariat of the PDP after our own security details tried to shoot at them,” a security aide told SaharaReporters.
The Deputy Governor has been speaking with our correspondent how he was targeted by the thugs, and how he managed to escape with his life.
SaharaReporters will report the latest details as they become available.
