Seibo disclosed this after he reportedly escaped an assassination attempt on Thursday night at Rainbow Town in Port Harcourt, the Rivers state capital.

According to News Point Nigeria, Dr. Sekibo and other party members were at the venue of the scheduled presidential rally for inspection when gunmen dressed in security uniform opened fire on Sekibo’s vehicle, a Land Cruiser bulletproof jeep.

Confirming the incident at a news briefing Friday, Sekibo said his car was riddled with bullets and the venue of the proposed rally set on fire, while security watched the inferno.

“As we approached the site, those policemen who were watching the inferno opened fire on our vehicle. I looked at the Hilux vehicles, they were police Hilux vehicles attached to the Governor of Rivers State.”
