The senatorial candidate of the New Nigeria People’s Party in the 2023 general election in the western zone of Nasarawa State, Dr Wakili Kabir-Muhammad, has escaped an assassination attempt by yet-to-be-identified gunmen.


It was gathered that the gunmen invaded his residence at the Government Reserved Area in Keffi Local Government Area of the state, at the weekend.


The senatorial candidate had filed a petition before the Election Petition Tribunal challenging the declaration of Ahmed Wadada of the Social Democratic Party, as the winner of the Nasarawa West Senatorial Zone election by the Independent National Election Commission.


Addressing journalists on the incident in Lafia on Monday, Kabir-Muhammad, who said the incident had a political undertone, added that he had reported the matter to the Police Area Command in Keffi LGA.
