The Senator representing Osun West Senatorial District, Adelere Oriolowo has announced that he escaped an assassination attempt on Sunday afternoon.

Reports say unknown gunmen had attacked the Senator and his entorouge at Ikire, Irewole local government area of the state.

Meanwhile Senator Oriolowo’ Press Secretary aides, Niyi Isamotu said the attack was an assassination attempt on the Senator but luckily escaped unscathed from the scene.

He said some hoodlums just began to act unnecessarily funny leading to an uproar before they began to attempt to attack the Senator.

“It was an attempt on his life. We were at an Osun West Senatorial meeting at Ikire and suddenly there was an uprising shortly after the senator arrived at the meeting. It took the expertise of the security attached to the senator to whisk him away from the scene and had to leave some of his aides behind.

“We only thank God that no one among the entourage was injured in the scene. But they vandalised the two vehicles in the convoy. However, the senator is well and unharmed,” he said.

Although, the Senator could not be reached he wrote on his Facebook page, “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”.
