How Ekweremadu escaped assassins again - ITREALMS

ITREALMS:
The Deputy Senate President (DSP), Chief Ike Ekweremadu, has once again escaped assassination by gunmen, early Tuesday morning in his residence at Apo Legislative Quarters in Abuja, reports ITREALMS.

A direct attempt, ITREALMS recalls was made on the Senator representing Enugu West Senatorial District on November 17, 2017, when his convoy was blocked 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.

However, on Tuesday early hours, gunmen invaded his rresidence in Abuja but every member of his family at home escaped including his wife and children, despite the security cordon around the premises at the Apo Legislative Quarters in Abuja.

Confirming the attempt on DSP, his spokesman, Uche Anichukwu, gave a graphic description of the incident, in a statement, on Tuesday, saying however, that the top federal lawmaker, was able to survive the attack while one of the suspected assailants, was arrested.

“The Deputy President of the Senate, Senator Ike Ekweremadu, his wife, and son escaped an assassination attempt at about 4am on Tuesday.

“The armed men discreetly evaded the security at Ekweremadu’s Apo Quarters residence, to gain entry into his house. The attackers, who could not immediately shoot in order not to attract the attention of the security personnel on duty, took hold of his son and commanded him to lead them to the Senator’s bedroom.

“It was at the Senator’s bedroom that a struggle ensued, leading to the arrest of one of the assailants with dangerous weapons and housebreaking devices, while the rest managed to escape. The arrested member of the gang reportedly refused to divulge any information on the operation and has been handed over to the police.

“Ekweremadu, his wife, and one of his sons were in the house at the time of the attack.”
