Former PDP chairman, Tukur, alleges assassination attempt on his life

A few weeks after the deputy senate president, Ike Ekweremadu, made similar claims, a former national chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has alleged that there was an attempt on his life by suspected assassins.

Tukur said in a statement by his Special assistant on Media, Prince Oliver Okpala, that the attempt on his life was made along the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport Road while he was on his way to Owerri m via Abuja Airport to receive a doctorate degree award from Federal University of Technology (FUTO), Owerri in Imo State.

He explained that as his convoy, made up of four jeeps, was driving to the airport, Hilux van with tinted glassed emerged and attempted to break into the convoy heading towards Tukur’s jeep when his security escort prevented the attempts.
