The three lawmakers were coming from a burial of the elder brother to the wife of Hon Tsebe when the assassins shot at the vehicle of Hon Tsebe at Wowyen village, along Akwanga/ Lafia road.
It was learnt that the gun target was on the vehicle of Hon Tsebe as Hon Akwe was in his car ahead followed by Hon Maiyaki, who was also in his car while HonTsebe was coming behind in his car too when the assassins shot at Hon Tsebe’s car.
Hon Samuel Tsebe (APC- Akwanga South) expressed gratitude to God for saving his life and the lives of his colleagues.
“We left Akwanga this morning coming to office after the burial which was conducted yesterday, When we are approaching Wowyen village along Akwanga/ Lafia road , that is between Police Mobile Training College, Ende Hills and the village towards the bridge, I heard gun shot at the driver’s side of my car in which I was the one driving.
“The bullet has broken down the glasses of my car. The shot was targeted at the driver in which I was the one driving, so this gave me suspicion that someone was monitoring my movement and knew that I was the one driving.
“It is more of assassination attempt.
“I have informed the police on the assassination attempt.
” Thank God my life was saved,” Hon. Tsebe said.
