Zanna Ibrahim, the Commissioner of Police in Delta State, ​ha​s​ rejected claims by Senator Ovie Omo-Agege (APC-Delta Central) that ​some individuals attempted to assassinate him.

The Senator ​had claimed that​ ​hoodlums attacked ​him and his entourage, including his wife​, ​some ​party officials and members in Effurun, Uvwie council area of Delta State.

​Reacting to the lawmaker’s claim, Ibrahim told Sahara Reporters that the Police were not aware of any assassination plan against Omo-Agege.

The police boss said a case of unruly behaviour by some youths might have been escalated to assassination attempt.

”I don’t know about any assassination attempt on the senator. Didn’t he have policemen with him?​

​”I know he reported a complaint at the Ekpan police station that he was attacked by thugs during an empowerment program but I don’t know whether it boils down to an assassination attempt.

​”My question is didn’t he have policemen with him? As a senator who will go on empowerment program​, ​will he go empty handed?

”If you are going for empowerment program​, ​are you not supposed to tell the police that you will do empowerment program and they give you police, did he do that?

​”Also, didn’t he have police operatives with him? Somebody will not just wake up to say they attempted to assassinate him.

​”When are making allegations you have a substantial proves not just making allegations,” Ibrahim said.
