Outcry as Aspiring Law Maker Survives Assassination attempt Sustaining Injuries(Video)

With the awful challenge of leadership facing the Nigerian nation, there has been a rise in the call for well meaning and vigorous young men, with lofty dreams and innovative acumen to step up and enjoin the fray of politics, in order to help in ushering a paradigm shift in our polity, thereby accelerating the retirement of the older career politicians stifling the nations progress with outdated ideas in this age of information.

The seeming people’s favourite for the Enugu South Rural Constituency Seat at the State House of Assembly election in 2023, Mr.Akaolisa Ogbe is recuperating in an unnamed medical facility,  having escaped an assassination attempt, as alleged assassins attacked him at point blank range , raining bullets on his vehicle.

Excerpt of a press release  from his support group narrated the painful incident with details.

”Mr Akaolisa Ogbe, a PDP State House of Assembly aspirant from Maryland Ward 13 Enugu South,a gentle and kind young man ,whose only crime was to have shown zeal and burning passion to serve and represent his people, was shot yesterday evening Saturday 16th of April at Amechi.”

”He was trailed in Gestapo style, blocked at a Petrol station and shot at point blank range ,as he left the house of his Uncle, a prominent stakeholder who had warmly received him.But to the Glory of the almighty he miraculously survived.”

“Must we shed the blood of our kinsmen, all in a bid to secure selfish interests. With this kind of thing happening, it means violence and bloodletting will come to an alarming height in a build up to the polls.”

“With this, we call on the Government to quickly intervene and put a stop to this dangerous menace from rearing it’s ugly head in Enugu, a known peace loving state where he the Governor has invested and done so much in terms of security.”

“Politics is not a do or die affair, let us shun violence, but rather seek bridges to fill in gaps in local and urban development.”

This  excerpt from a press release from Ogbe Akaolisa National Support Group,  narrating the painful incident was accompanied with  videos of  their principal, seemingly unconscious in an emergency ward of a medical facility .

Mr. Ogbe Akaolisa ,who kicked off his consultation with courtesy visits to political stake holders in his ward and constituency, intimating them of his decision and seeking for their consent, support and blessings, was attacked after a consultation meeting with the women and elders of one of the community in his constituency , from which he visited his uncle.

Ever since he declared his intent of representing his people, with undue simplicity and humility he has garnered an amazing support base, both from the young and the aged, whom saw in him; a man with a clean heart that simply wanted to serve. This must have has caused frayed nerves among his opponents for an attempt to shut him out of his dream, even before the polls.

Information from his support group, affirms that he will survive the assassination attempt, as the injuries he sustained does not seem life threatening at the time of this report.
