The Director General of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Presidential Campaign Council in Rivers State, Dr. Abiye Sekibo, narrowly escaped assassination in the early hours of Friday.
It was gathered that gunmen dressed in police uniform opened fire on Sekibo’s Land Cruiser bulletproof jeep at Rainbow Town in Port Harcourt, where he went to inspect the venue of a proposed presidential rally of the party.
Confirming the incident at a news conference on Friday, Sekibo said his car was riddled with bullets and the venue of the proposed rally was set ablaze while policemen looked on.
“As we approached the site, those policemen who were watching the fire opened fire on our vehicle. I looked at the Hilux vehicles, they were police Hilux vehicles attached to the Governor of Rivers State,” he said
