How I escaped assassins’ bullets, by Alaba Lawson

By DAUD OLATUNJIABEOKUTA – Iyalode of Yorubaland, Chief  Alaba   Lawson, yesterday, recounted her four years  self-exile ordeal during the last administration, saying that, she  mysteriously survived  various alleged assassination attempts on her life.

Lawson, who is President, Odua  Chamber of Commerce, Industry, Mines and Agriculture, ODUACCIMA, said this in Abeokuta, at the induction of Ogun State National Union of Road Transport Workers, NURTW, and Amalgamated   Commercial Motorcycles’ Owners and Riders Association of Nigeria, ACOMORAN, as its members of Ogun State Chamber of Commerce, Industry, Mines and Agriculture, OGUNCCIMA.

She said: ‘’I must confess to you that, I have to run away for my dear life, and was in exile for four years. Even after my exit, they tried to destroy my businesses, but Jehovah did not give them the way.”

It would be recalled that Lawson, whose guard  was slaughtered some time in 2008, for allegedly refusing to show the assassins way into  his boss’ bedroom, escaped the assassins’ bullets when the killers stormed her Quarry Road residence in Abeokuta.

Iyalode Lawson said  she had to relocate outside the country thereafter for four years, adding that  despite her relocation, the  alleged  assassins were  reportedly  working hard towards destroying her businesses,’ but Jehovah was not on their side’.
