Yet-to-be identified gunmen on Friday attacked the convoy of Apostle Johnson Suleman along the Benin Auchi Road, Edo State, and allegedly shot seven persons including three policemen to death.
It gathered that Suleman bad just returned from a foreign trip and was heading to a destination in Edo State when the gunmen attacked his convoy around.
Suleman’s lawyer, Samuel Amune, who confirmed the attack to journalists, said the cleric just returned from a programme in Tanzania, adding that he escaped death by a whisker.
When contacted, the State Police Public Relations Officer, Chuidi Nwabuzor, said that though he just heard about it, he cannot confirm it yet.
“Let me hear from the Divisional Police Officer covering that area,” he said.
