According to a source, the attackers came from a nearby street, shot at his entrance and made their way into the senator’s compound.

According to the report, about 5 cars were destroyed while people in the compound, including the senator’s relatives, ran for their dear lives.

At about 10:50am on Thursday, men of the Department of State Services (DSS), policemen and Maeba were seen driving into the residence.

It is yet to be ascertained who the sponsors of the attack are, as neither the police, PDP, nor the state had made comments about the development.

The PDP had been in crisis since Atiku Abubakar emerged as the opposition’s presidential candidate.

In the call for justice, fairness and equity, the governor of Rivers state, Nyesom Wike and 4 other governors of the PDP are demanding the resignation of the party’s national chairman, Iyorchia Ayu, who had earlier promised to step down should a northerner emerged as PDP presidential candidate.
