The Kogi State Chairman of Christians Association of Nigeria (CAN), Bishop John Ibenu has escaped assassination attempts in Kogi state.

According to The Tribune, Ibenu said about seven suspected Fulani men along Ojodu in Ofu local government area rushed out of the bush and opened fire on his vehicle. His car was left riddled with bullets.

Narrating his ordeal to newsmen in Lokoja, the state capital on Thursday, Ibenu said he was returning from his village in the eastern part of the state at about 5.30 pm on Sunday when he was attacked.

He explained that the assailants were on both sides of the road as four of the Fulani men rushed out from the bush and while attempting to make a u-turn, another three appeared from the bush and open gunfire on his vehicle.

Ibenu added that the people were fully armed with AK47 rifles, but he was only able to escape from the scene to a nearby village by God's grace. He called on the state governor to intensify more effort in curbing criminal activities in the state.
