Former House of Reps member and actress Bisi Ibidapo Obe's alleged baby daddy, Dino Melaye, yesterday evening escaped an assassination attempt on his life in Abuja.

He was attacked in Abuja City's Central Business District by unknown gunmen as he made his way home. NE gathered that his bullet-proof car saved his life..

He said the attackers, driving in a Golf car, crossed his car near the NNPC towers and immediately began shooting at him.

He said two bullets hit his car before he managed to escape unharmed.

“I am safe,” he told newsmen

Mr. Melaye, a former member of the Peoples Democratic Party, shortly after leaving the National Assembly, switched to the opposition flank, actively leading the January 2012 fuel subsidy protest.
He has since then remained an anti-corruption activist.

“When you fight corruption, corruption fights back strongly,” he said, blaming the attack on his anti-corruption stance.

The men who shot at the former lawmaker drove a Golf car.
