Edo APC Crisis: Party Chieftain Narrowly Escapes Assassination



The crisis rocking the All Progressives Party (APC) in Edo State took another dimension, Thursday, January 30, as a top member of the party, Mr. Henry Idahagbon narrowly escaped death.

The gunmen suspected to be hired assassins attacked the former Edo State Attorney General and Commissioner of Justice in his office, Siluko Road, near the popular Oliha Market.

The gunmen who came in three vehicles reportedly fired several shots, leaving the office pockmarked with bullets while shattered window panes littered the premises of the building.

Idahagbon who has since gone underground said that he quickly dashed for the back exit, through which he escaped, even as the fire was still going on, adding that miraculously nobody was injured.

He lamented; “I was in my office, attending to some clients when I heard the echoes of gunshots directed at my office. I immediately ran out. Thank God, nobody was injured. The windows were shattered while the building is pockmarked with bullets. I have reported the matter to the police.”

In panic, some neighbours who heard the volley of the shots, apparently from pump action rifles ran out of their shops, unlocked and fled for fear of being hit by stray bullets.
