The Deputy President of the Senate, Ike Ekweremadu, reportedly escapes an assassination attempt on his life and family after assassins invaded his home at the Apo Legislative quarters at about 4.am on Tuesday, November 6, 2018. Read the report HERE.

Ekweremadu has reacted to the assassination attempt made on his life at His Abuja Home in the early hours of Tuesday.

The Deputy Senate President expressed concerns over the security situation in Nigeria and condemned the poor response of the Police adding that the calls placed to Inspector-General of Police, Ibrahim Idris’ phone failed. He said:

Quote
“It is with gratitude to Almighty God that I will like to tell my colleagues, my constituents and the general public that myself my wife and my son narrowly escaped assassination in the early hours of this morning.”

“It was about 4am this morning, that some people evaded the security in my house and got all the way to my room where I was sleeping with my wife – there was a struggle, there was a fight with heavy commotion and by the grace of God we eventually caught one of them and rest escaped.

“We handed that one over to the police investigating the matter. The annoying aspect of it or the one that is worrisome is that at that point I called the Inspector-general of police (IGP), his phone was off, I called some of his aides, their phones rang out and nobody replied till now, I called DIG operations, till I left my house nobody showed up.

“I now had my people invite the DPO in charge of Apo police station. We didn’t see him till about 5:30, he sent his 2nd-in-command who came and he saw the dangerous weapons that they left behind, he left and sent that the DPO was coming until I left my house by 9am, the DPO had not come.

“Nobody is safe in this country, I want to appeal to my colleagues and the general public that we all continue to be prayerful, be conscious of our private security, it appears that the security is not in the hands of government but the Almighty God.”


In his remarks, Senate President Bukola Saraki condemned the attack while advising the Police to be nonpartisan in carrying out its duty of protecting the lives and properties of Nigerians
