All Progressives Congress (APC) Senator Adelere Oriolowo (Osun West District) on Sunday escaped an assassination attempt by suspected thugs during a constituency meeting in Ikire Osun State.

The senator was attending a constituency meeting organised by Osun West stakeholders when some thugs who were brandishing cutlasses and other weapons invaded the meeting.

There was uproar as security details of the senator prevented the thugs from attacking Oriolowo.

It was learnt that as he was whisked away to safety, thugs attacked other party members at the meeting.

The senator, in his Facebook post, confirmed the attack saying: “Just escaped an Assassination attempt on my life and that of my entourage. To God be the glory, we are safe and alive. God is my helper, my shelter and my fortress, I fear no evil. -AAO”

Orilowo media aide Mr Niyi Isamotu, who spoke on Phone, said: We held our regular APC Osun West Senatorial constituency meeting at Ikire. Nobody was armed but every vehicle at the venue were destroyed. Shortly after we arrived at the meeting there was unnecessary uproar. With the help of security agents, the senator was whisked away from the venue.”
