EDO 2016:Deputy Governor Odubu escapes death as gunmen attack his campaign team in Auchi

Edo State Deputy Governor, Rt. Hon. Dr. Pius Odubu escaped death by whiskers today  in Auchi by when some gunmen shot at him inside the APC secretariat in the city as he was receiving delegates.

On Wednesdays 27th April, Odubu had officially flagged off his campaign to run for governor amidst accusations and counter-accusations between him and Governor Adams Oshiomhole.

The shooting occurred shortly after the governor and his deputy left a function organized by Barr. Damian Lawani, the State House of Assembly member  representing Etsako Central Constituency.

The gun men invaded the venue of the campaign at the APC secretariat in the local government
and opened fire.

According to reports, Odubu escaped unhurt while five persons were critically injured and are currently receiving treatment at an undisclosed hospital.

The guard commander of the Deputy Governor’s police team was one of those hit when he shielded his boss from being hit by bullets.

Analysts say the attack might not be unconnected with the impasse currently going on between the governor and his deputy.
