Ikedi Ohakim Reacts To Gunmen Attack On His Convoy
Ohakim described the attack as a clear attempt to assassinate him.
He stated this in an 11-paragraph thank-you statement personally signed by him on Saturday.
“The story has been told and retold and though some versions were not altogether accurate, the important thing is that I survived what was a clear attempt to assassinate me.
“Even though the nationwide condemnation of such a despicable act was to be expected, I noticed, in all the messages and calls I received, deep personal love and regard for me.”
Recall that the former governor was attacked by gunmen on Monday evening around the Ori-Agu axis in the Ehime Mbano Local Government Area of the state while on his way from his hometown back to Owerri, the state capital, in company with his daughter and son.
The former governor called on security operatives to fish out the perpetrators of the attack.
Meanwhile, Kanyi Daily reported that the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, opened the South-West office for his presidential campaign in Akure, Ondo State on Saturday.
