OrderPaperToday- The Deputy President of the Senate, Ike Ekweremadu, has reportedly escaped an assassination attempt on his life alongside his wife and son.
According to statement released by his Special Adviser on Media, Uche Anichukwu, armed men tactfully evaded the security at Ekweremadu’s Apo Quarters residence and gained entry into his house at about 4am on Tuesday.
“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 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 statement said.
The arrested member of the gang refused to divulge any information on the operation and has been handed over to the Police.
