How my family fought off assassins’ attack – Ekweremadu


Deputy Senate President Ike Ekweremadu has revealed that his family fought off the attack allegedly by assassins that stormed his Abuja home.
Ekweremadu alleged this while dismissing police account that the incident was a mere case of burglary.

“I am at a loss because as we speak, they have not taken any statement from my son, who was hospitalised; they have not gone to the hospital to find out what exactly happened to my son. They have invited security personnel attached to me, who reported yesterday. Some are still reporting this morning.

“They (the Police) looked at the CCTV tapes operated by the DSS and a staff of my house; apparently they were not able to figure it out. So, it was easy for them to quickly dismiss what really happened.

Continued: “Unfortunately for them, later yesterday evening, a technician came and was able to figure out and was able to produce the CCTV footage, including how they gained entrance into my house and how they got a way into my room and the fight between them, my wife and my son and all the efforts we made to save our lives. I am happy that we have that in our custody, which the police is not aware of.’
