Nigeria’s Deputy President of the Senate, Ike Ekweremadu Tuesday survived assassination attempt.

Ekweremadu is of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
According to his Media Aide, Uche Anichukwu, the attempt was made while he was going to work at about 10:00am between Apo Flyover and Dantata Construction Company’s yard, close to the Old Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) Headquarters junction.
Anichukwu stated further, “The suspected assassins, who operated in a tinted, white-coloured Mercedes 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,” he said.
