Gunmen attack APC chieftain, kill Police escort in Rivers

The convoy of an APC chieftain was attacked yesterday in Rivers State. The foiled attempt was allegedly an assassination ploy on the All Progressives Congress chieftain, Mr. Chikordi Dike.  The attack claimed the life of a police escort attached to him.

According to report on Vanguard, the suspected assassins attacked their victims around Polo Club in GRA phase 2 and engaged the only policeman attached to Dike in an exchange of gunfire.

A senior police officer who related the incident to Vanguard disclosed the name of the late police officer as Corporal Yakubu.

The officer said Mr. Yakubu was gunned down around 11pm, Tuesday night, after he was over powered by the suspected assassins while he was trying to protect his boss.

At press time the Rivers State Police Command is yet to give an official statement on the development.
