SHOCKING! Fayose Names Biggest Culprit In Assassination Attempt On Ekweremadu

Former Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose has named who could best be described as the biggest culprit in the assassination attempt on the lives of Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu and his family in Abuja.

Fayose, in a tweet on his twitter handle, @GovAyoFayose pointed accusing fingers to President Buhari’s APC Government as well as the Security Agencies in the countries.

The former governor lamented that the security operatives were more alive to the duty of invading the National Assembly than the protection of lives and property.

He said it is indeed worrisome that such threat to life is happening brazenly under Buhari as he wrote:

Peter Ayodele Fayose

@GovAyoFayose

In Nigeria under the APC govt of @MBuhari, assassination attempt was made on the Dep. Senate President Ike Ekweremadu and his family, we should all be worried.
It appears that our security agencies are now more alive to the duty of invading NASS and residences of its leadership.

“In Nigeria under the APC govt of Buhari, assassination attempt was made on the Dep. Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu and his family, we should all be worried.

“It appears that our security agencies are now more alive to the duty of invading NASS and residences of its leadership,”

There was been an assassination attempt on the Deputy Leader of the Nigerian Parliament, Senator Ike Ekweremadu.

This was announced on Tuesday by his aide, Uche Anichukwu.

He said armed gunmen evaded the senator’s residence in Abuja avoiding his security detail before gaining access into his house at 4am.

“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 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 has, however, 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.

“It could be recalled that the lawmaker narrowly escaped an attempt on his life in Abuja on November 17, 2015.

“Although the 2015 incident was reported to the security agencies, nothing has been heard about the matter till date.
