Former head of state, General Muhammadu Buhari (retd) has said that the second explosion that ripped through Kaduna on Wednesday was an assassination attempt on his life.
Buhari, a national leader of the All Progressives Congress, narrated harrowing experience. “The unfortunate event, clearly an assassination attempt came from a fast moving vehicle that made many attempts to overtake my security car, but was blocked by escort vehicle.
“We reached the market area of Kawo where he took advantage of our slowing down and attempted to ram my car and instantly detonated the bomb which destroyed all the three cars in our convoy.
“Thank God for His mercy, I came out unhurt, but three of my security staff sustained minor injuries. They have since been treated in hospital and discharged,” the statement read.
