A member of the House of Representatives and former deputy governorship candidate of the APC, James Faleke, has reportedly survived an assassination attempt. A statement released today by the Director, Media and Publicity of the Audu/Faleke Political Organisation, Duro Meseko, states that Faleke was attacked by suspected assassins on Sunday Nov. 6th. Meseko said the suspected assassins rained bullets on Faleke’s SUV at the overhead bridge at Gwagwalada, Abuja around 7 p.m.
The statement in part reads
“The news of the assassination attempt on our leader, Hon James Faleke came to us as a big shock. How could any sane mind contemplate such evil on an innocent soul who though shamelessly robbed of his governorship mandate has remained humble, calm, peaceful, and law abiding. What else could those wicked masterminds want? His political foes had resorted to this dastardly plan to assassinate him. We thank the almighty God for sparing his life. Some desperate and wicked people would want to cause more pain and misery to an already pained citizenry who aside having lost the creme of its political class to both natural and unnatural causes like Barrister James Ocholi, Prince Abubakar Audu, Senator Ohize and even Senator Ohiare who narrowly escaped death recently, are also undergoing the most unprecedented socio-economic crisis ever.”
