Former National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole, was on Tuesday involved in a car crash.
The accident left two policemen attached to Oshiomhole’s convoy dead.
The crash happened when an articulated vehicle lost control and ran into Oshiomhole’s convoy near Oluku junction in the Ovia North-East Local Government Area of Edo State.
In a statement, his media aide Victor Oshioke, insisted it was an assassination attempt.
It is pertinent to state, without fear of contradiction, that the convoy of Comrade Adams Oshiomhole was maintaining legal speed limits when this incident occurred.
“This explains why the trailer travelling in the same direction, overran the Hilux truck off the road and still hit the SUV carrying Comrade Oshiomhole, causing substantial damage.
“Without prejudice to police investigations, eyewitnesses account of the incident suggest, and we believe rightly too, that this was an assassination attempt, targeting Comrade Adams Oshiomhole,” part of the statement read.
