The individuals who were thought to be kidnappers had fired shots straight toward the vehicles that were part of the convoy. According to a source, the assailants, who had been following Suleman from Benin City, began firing their weapons near the river Ole.

According to a source who spoke with Daily Trust, Apostle Suleman made the decision not to travel via the Benin-Auchi road because of the poor condition of the road. Due to the poor condition of the Benin-Auchi road, he decided to take the Ifor route in Ondo State on his way back from Benin to Auchi after attending a program in both cities.

Apostle Suleman drove the “front vehicle” himself while two cars trailed behind; they slowed down when they reached an area that had a speed breaker in it. The gunmen who had been following him opened fire on his convoy when they got to river Ole.

“The attackers, who believed the target was in one of the back vehicles, opened fire on them, and as a result, they took the lives of a police officer, two drivers, and a woman.” Apostle Suleiman sped up his flight when he heard the gunfire and managed to get away from the location.

According to the source, after the attackers realized that they had missed their target, they made a U-turn and headed toward Benin. However, the vigilantes and the security team, which consisted of police and soldiers, went after them.

“When the gunmen realized that security was after them, they decided to hijack a bus, where they ended up killing one of the female passengers and used the other passengers as cover as they escaped. But one of them has been arrested.”

In a post on Twitter, Shehu Sani, who had previously served as a senator, provided evidence that supported several assertions made by the witness. “I just finished a conversation with Apostle Suleiman. He verified to me that it was an attempt on his life and that some of his aides had lost their lives in the process of the attempted assassination. Additionally, he verified that an arrest had been made.
