Ekweremadu escaped assassination

The Deputy President of the Senate, Senator Ike Ekweremadu, Tuesday (17-11-15), escaped suspected assassination attempt, according to his special adviser on media, Mr. Uche Anichukwu, reports ITRealms.

He also said that 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.

Anichukwu equally said that 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,” he said.
