Three members of the Nasarawa State House of Assembly claimed they escaped an assassination attempt along Akwanga- Lafia Highway while on their way from a burial on Wednesday.
Those involved in the attack, which occurred at about 10 am Wednesday, were Samuel Tsebe, representing APC- Akwanga South; David Maiyaki representing APC- Karu/ Gitata; and Hon Peter Akwanga PDP- Obi 1, Vanguard reports.
The report stated that the gunmen targeted the vehicle of Tsebe, followed by Maiyaki, who was also in his car.
Tsebe (APC- Akwanga South) expressed gratitude to God for saving his life and that of his colleagues.
“We were approaching Wowyen village, along Akwanga/Lafia road, that is between Police Mobile Training College, Ende Hills and the village towards the bridge.
“I heard gunshots targeted at the driver’s side of my car. I was the one driving. The bullet broke down the glasses of my car. The shots were targeted at the driver. This gave me a suspicion that someone was monitoring my movement.
“It is more of an assassination attempt. I have informed the police of the incident. I thank God my life was saved,” Vanguard quoted Tsebe as saying.
