The Gubernatorial candidate of the Accord party in Rivers State, Dumo Lulu-Briggs, has narrated how he escaped an assassination attempt on Saturday evening at Etche Local Government Area of the state.
Lulu-Briggs, confirmed the attack, saying he was informed that Accord Secretariat at Igbo Etche in the LGA was attacked and damaged and decided to visit the office.
It was on his way to the said venue that hoodlums opened fire on him and his supporters, damaging his bulletproof vehicle seriously.
The Accord governorship aspirant expressed sadness over the recent turn of events in the state, lamenting how it had become a jungle.
Lulu-Briggs said, “We got a very damning report that our party secretariat was attacked.
“So we had to go round to see what was going on in our secretariat. On our way there, the same boys opened fire.
“They attacked us, destroyed our vehicles., they shot at my vehicle. You can see my car. All my windscreen, and glasses chattered.
“The whole convoy shot at, shot at people. It is terrible. I don’t understand what this has turned into. It’s a jungle state now, lawless place.
“We will not be allowed to campaign and Rivers people will decide who will be their governor, their senators, you know. It is not by violence, attacking people.”
“These things must stop. It is not a kangaroo state. We have a country. I tried to reach the commissioner of police, but I couldn’t get him. But I sent him a message by text.
“I hope that he will get my message and call me. This nonsense has to stop,” he added
