    In a press statement by the spokesman of the Deputy Senate President, Mr Uche Anichukwu, the attempt occurred at about 10:00am local time on Tuesday between Apo Flyover and Dantata Construction Company’s yard, close to the Old Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) Headquarters junction in Abuja, Nigeria’s capital city.

    According to him, the suspected assassins, 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 Ekweremadu’s convoy took the right turn to join the Nnamdi Azikiwe Expressway instead, made a turn,” the statement read.

    He stated that the occupants attempted to attack the convoy, but were blocked.

    Mr Anichukwu further alleged that the driver violently broke into the convoy and made several frantic attempts to attack the Senator’s official car.

    He said that the development had been reported to security agencies.
