Gunmen invaded the home of The Deputy Senate President, Senator Ike Ekweremadu on Tuesday morning in a bid to assassinate him.
According to a release by his Media Aide Uche Anichukwu, the assassins evaded the security around the Deputy Senate President’s Abuja residence at 4am before gaining entrance but they could not immediately shoot in order not to alert the security personnels.
Ekweremadu was reported to have engaged the attackers in fisticuffs which led to the arrest of one of the assassins.
The arrested assassin has refused to reveal any information about the operation as he has been handed over to the police for further investigation.
The senator had also in November, 2015 escaped an assassination attempt.
