Olafemi, who spoke at a briefing in Lokoja, alleged that the assassins were after his life following the open letter he wrote to President Muhammadu Buhari over the marginalisation of his Okun people.

The All Progressives Congress, APC, chieftain said the latest attempt occurred about 12 midnight on Tuesday, when a woman was spotted around his house located at Aniebo quarters in Lokoja when people were already asleep.

Spokesman of Kogi State Police Command, Mr. William Ayah, while confirming the story, said the female suspect had been moved to Criminal Investigation Department, CID, for investigation.
