Former House of Reps Member, Dino Melaye Escapes Assassination Attempt in Abuja
Hon. Melaye was driving home from a yet to be dsiclosed location when gunmen who apparently was on his trail opened fire on his vehicle at the high brow central business district of the federal Capital City.
Giving an account of the incident, Hon. Dino said the attackers, driving in a Golf car, crossed his car near the NNPC towers and immediately began shooting at him.
He said two bullets hit his car before he managed to escaped unharmed.
Although, Dino escaped unhurt, the windows of the white Bentley car he was ridding got ridden with bullets as a result of the shots fired.
Mr. Melaye has been a staunch government critic since he left the National Assembly as a federal lawmaker.
He spares no effort in criticising government’s activities especially as it concerns finance related matters.
When asked to comment on the incident, director of planning and strategy of the Anti-Corruption Network, a Non-Governmental Organisation spearheaded by Hon. Melaye said “It’s just a miracle that he is alive. He called me about an hour ago and told me what happened.
“They were about four or five of them and they shot at his Bentley twice, but the bullets didn’t penetrate. It is a miracle, because they are not bullet-proof. They even tried to jack him down from the car.
When asked if they were possibly robbers, he replied: “It’s a clear case of assassination. No one would want to steal a Bentley. When you fight corruption, corruption tries to fight back.
“We just thank God for his life. God is greater than evil doers and we give him all the praise.”
