Tragedy almost struck Kogi State again as the acting Chairperson of Okene Local Government Area, Hon. Bilkisu Aliyu escaped assassination attempt on Thursday evening.

Press gathered that the council boss was on her way back from Lokoja when her vehicle was attacked by yet-to-be identified gunmen around Osara, along Okene-Lokoja road

This is coming few weeks after unknown gunmen invaded a Police Station in Adavi Local Government and killed three police officers on duty.

An aide to the council boss, who did not want her name mentioned, told Press that it took the efforts of policemen attached to her to repel the assailants.

According to the source, “Aliyu had gone to Lokoja to attend a top-government security meeting and was returning to her base in Okene when she was attacked by unknown gunmen who were armed with sophisticated weapons.”

Efforts to speak with the Council boss proved abortive as of the time of filing this report.

When contacted, the Police Public Relations Officer, SP William Aya said he was yet to get any information about the incident, but promised to give Press a feedback when he gets the details from Okene Police Division.
