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’.
