Former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode has alleged a plot to kill the Senator representing Niger East Senatorial District in the National Assembly, Mohammed Sani Musa.
In a tweet via his Twitter page on Saturday evening, Fani-Kayode claimed that nine armed persons attacked the home of the lawmaker in Minna, the Niger State capital.
The chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) described the alleged plot to kill Senator Musa as despicable, condemning the attack on his residence.
Fani-Kayode, however, disclosed that some of the perpetrators have been arrested by security agencies, saying that those behind the attempt to kill the Senator and his family would be exposed and brought to justice.
He wrote: ”The horrendous attempt to kill Sen. Sani Musa, a dear friend & brother of mine, a leading member of the APC & one of the Directors in the Tinubu/Shettima PCC in his home this evening by 9 well-armed, bloodthirsty & violent assassins is despicable. I wholeheartedly condemn it.
”Thankfully some of the perpetrators have been apprehended by the security agencies and those that were behind this dastardly attempt to kill the Senator and his family shall be exposed and brought to justice.
”May God protect us all from evil and bloodthirsty men.”
