Suspected assassins on Friday attacked the convoy of Apostle Johnson Suleman along the Benin Auchi Road, Edo State, and allegedly killed seven persons including three policemen.

According to The PUNCH, Suleman returned from a foreign trip and was heading to a destination in Edo State when the gunmen attacked his convoy around the Auchi area of the state.
Pastor Suleman who was in a bulletproof car escaped unhurt.

During the attack, the gunmen reportedly opened fire on his convoy, allegedly killing three of his police orderlies and four other yet-to-be-identified persons.

Suleman’s lawyer, Samuel Amune, who confirmed the attack to our correspondent, said the cleric just returned from a programme in Tanzania, adding that he escaped death by a whisker.

He said, “He was returning from a journey and he had almost gotten on the shores of Auchi when some assassins attacked him. Three of his police orderlies, among others died. He travelled before and just finished a programme in Tanzania day before yesterday.

He was returning to Auchi when the gunmen attacked him along Sabingida down to Warake area, and Auchi shares direct boundary with Warake. So, he had passed Warake and was entering the boundaries of Auchi when the attack happened.”

A security expert, Dickson Osajie, who condemned the lack of security in the state, said the attack happened in broad daylight.
