Deputy Senate president Ike Ekweremadu escapes attempted assasination

The Deputy President of the Senate, Senator Ike Ekweremadu says he
escaped an assassination attempt today November 17th. Ekweremadu’s
special adviser on media, Uche Anichukwu made this known in a statement
he released this evening. The statement in part reads;


“The Deputy President of the Senate, Senator Ike Ekweremadu, escaped
suspected assassination attempt, Tuesday. 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 work.
The suspected assassins who operated in a tinted,
white-coloured Mercedez Benz AMG E63 without a plate number, were
chauffeured by a long-bearded light skinned foreigner, apparently a
mercenary. 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.”the statement read
