Gunmen Attack Oshiomhole’s Convoy Again

The Governor of Edo State, Adams Oshiomhole on Thursday survived assassination attack by unknown gunmen two months after he narrowly escaped death following an attack on his convoy at Auchi area.

Oshiomhole, who is vying for a second term in office as the Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) candidate, was attacked while his campaign train stopped at Usen town, Ovia South West Local Government Area of the state.

The state’s Commissioner for Information and Orientation, Louis Odion, confirmed the incident. “At about 6pm local time, Governor Oshiomhole’s convoy left the palace; it had not travelled too far down the road when it ran into a barricade,” he said.

“Naturally, the security details attached to the governor came down to remove the bar. As they were clearing the place, tens of heavily armed thugs emerged from nowhere and opened fire on the governor for several seconds.

Dutifully, the brave security details attached to the governor, supported by an additional contingent of regular policemen deployed to maintain law and order, rose to the occasion. They were able to shield the governor, key government functionaries and others, including leaders of Edo ACN to safety without sustaining any human casualties.
