Some gunmen reportedly made an attempt on the life of the senator representing Niger East Senatorial District in Niger state, Alhaji Mohammed Sani Musa, but they did not succeed.

The Sun reported that the assassins who attacked Saturday night, December 3, trailed Musa from Abuja to his residence along the popular old Alheri Clinic road, Tunga area in Minna, the Niger state capital.

Unknown to the assailants, the senator, who is seeking his second term into the red chamber in 2023, had returned to Abuja in the afternoon before they invaded the house in the night.

The suspected assailants were reported to have secured the services of two people, fully armed and in military uniform, who accompanied them to the senator’s residence at about 8pm.

A source close to the senator’s house said the suspects dispossessed the policemen at the gate of their mobile phones, attempting to enter the house but were unlucky. Information about the attack got to a close ally of the senator, who is the Special Adviser to Governor Sani Bello on political matters, Alhaji Nma Kolo. He sprung into action, and the suspects were rounded up.

When contacted, the state commissioner for Internal Security and Humanitarian Affairs, Emmanuel Umar, confirmed the incident. He added that some arrests had been made while appealing to the public to remain calm.

According to the APC chieftain, some of the perpetrators have been apprehended by security agencies. He added that those behind the dastardly attempt to kill the senator and his family will be exposed and brought to justice.

This is not the first time the senator has been targeted. About two years ago, some armed men invaded his residence in a similar manner but met his absence.
