The lawmaker representing Osun West Senatorial District, Mr Adelere Oriolowo, was on Sunday attacked by armed hoodlums during a constituency meeting in Osun State.
Although the lawmakers escaped the assassination attempt by suspected political thugs, his vehicle was damaged.
Oriolowo was at the All Progressives Congress constituency meeting which was organised by Osun West Senatorial District party members at Ikire, the headquarters of Irewole Local Government Area of the state when hoodlums armed with cutlasses and other weapons invaded the meeting to attack him.
The scene caused an uproar as the security details of the senator prevented the thugs from attacking the lawmaker.
It was learnt that he was whisked away for safety as the thugs attacked other party members at the meeting.
The senator, in a Facebook post, confirmed the attack saying, “Just escaped an assassination attempt on my life and that of my entourage. To God be the glory, we are safe and alive. God is my helper, my shelter and my fortress, I fear no evil.”
The media aide of the senator, Mr Niyi Isamotu, explained that his principal was in a constituency meeting with APC members of Osun West when they were attacked.
“We held our regular APC Osun West Senatorial constituency meeting at Ikire. Nobody was harmed but every vehicle at the venue was destroyed. Shortly after we arrived at the meeting there was unnecessary uproar. With the help of security agents, the senator was whisked away from the venue.”
