The Deputy President of the Senate, Senator Ike Ekweremadu, escaped suspected assassination attempt, Tuesday reports Premium Times.

The attempt, according to Uche Anichukwu, the dep‎uty senate president’s spokesperson, occurred at about 10:00am between Apo Flyover and Dantata Construction Company’s yard, close to the Old Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) Headquarters junction on his way to work.

The suspected assassins who Mr. Anichukwu said operated in a tinted white-coloured Mercedez Benz AMG E63 without a plate number, were reportedly chauffeured by a long-bearded light skinned foreigner, apparently a mercenary.

The spokesperson continued,”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.”

There is a very big clue here, shey they said the vehicle partially smashed another incoming vehicle on the other Lane, they can start now to mount surveillance on every white Mercedes e63 for the bash on the car, at least they won't fix it too fast. Any white Mercedes with the bash on that area should be held..
