A statement by an aide to Deputy Senate President, Senator Ike Ekweremadu, has said that he escaped suspected assassination attempt on Tuesday, November 17, 2015.


The assassination attempt, according to Uche Anichukwu, Ekweremadu’s spokesperson, 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.


Anichukwu claimed that the suspected assassins operated in a tinted white-coloured Mercedez Benz AMG E63 without a plate number, and were chauffeured by a long-bearded light skinned foreigner, apparently a mercenary.


Said he: ”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.”
