NNPP Chieftain Escapes Assassination Attempt in Nasarawa
A chieftain of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP) in Nasarawa State, Hon Musa Ibrahim Abubakar, last Wednesday escaped an assassination attempt on him by suspected gunmen in Doma Local Government Area of the state.

The NNPP state assembly candidate, who is receiving treatment in a private hospital in the state, told journalists yesterday on his sick bed that he was attacked while returning to Doma after donating relief materials and cash to victims of a flood disaster in Rukubi town.

“After the donation in Rukubi town, I was returning to the headquarters of Doma Local Government Area when about nine gunmen opened fire on me from different directions. They shot and hit me on my elbow and back. 46 bullet shots hit and penetrated my car.

According to him, “after I was shot, I accelerated the car and lowered my head and the car stopped when it nearly reached Igbabo village when I came down and ran towards the people calling for help.”

He continued that at the Igbabo village, good Samaritans rescued him, took him on a motorcycle for 20 kilometres journey to Doma town, and was subsequently conveyed for another 20 kilometres to Dalhatu Araf Specialist Hospital (DASH), Lafia, the state capital.

He disclosed that three bullets were removed from his body at DASH where he spent three days in the Intensive Care Unit of the hospital, but relocated to a private hospital in the state.
