Okowa’s Security Aid Escapes Assassination 

The Senior Special Assistant on Security to Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta State, Olorogun Samuel Oghotomo, has reportedly escaped an assassination attempt.

It was reported that the aid said he was attacked by suspected gunmen at Ovwor in Ughelli South Local Government Area of the state on Monday.

Oghotomo, who narrated his ordeal said the suspected assassins or kidnappers blocked his way along the old Oguname-Ophorigbala-Ovwor Road at about 9:15 pm of the said day.

“While the car was being reversed, the gunmen went after me before the car was halted by a gully, and I quickly sneaked out of the car and escaped into the lonely bush.

“When they noticed that I was escaping, they shot sporadically in my direction but I narrowly escaped. They carted away cash and other valuables worth millions of naira,” he added.

When contacted, the Chairman of Ughelli South Local Government Council, Hon. Chief Richard Kofi, confirmed the incident, saying appropriate measures were being put in place to end the reoccurrence of such incidents in the future.
