The Deputy President of the Senate, Senator Ike Ekweremadu, says he escaped being assassinated while heading to work, around 10am on Tuesday morning.
Ekweremadu’s spokesperson, Uche Anichukwu, says the assassination attempt on his principal’s life took place between Apo Flyover and Dantata Construction Company’s yard, in Abuja
He was supposedly trailed by a white Mercedez Benz AMG E63, which was driven by ‘a long-bearded foreigner’, suspected to be a mercenary.
A statement released on Tuesday evening, saying the assassin’s attempt was futile.
“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. The occupants attempted to attack the convoy, but were blocked. The driver violently broke into the convoy and they made several frantic attempts to attack the Senator’s official car.
”When charged at by the security operatives attached to the Deputy President of the Senate, the Benz driver made a U-turn, and partially smashed an oncoming vehicle on the opposite lane of the highway and escaped. The development has already been reported to the security agencies.”
