Fear has gripped the family members of the secretary of Etsako East local government area of Edo state, Hon Paul Aronokhale, as suspected assassin invaded his country home in Okpella, the administrative headquarters of the State.
Aronokhale explained to newsmen in Benin City, Edo state that he was in Jigawa state on a visit to the state government during the attack.
He, however, said in his petition to the Inspector General of Police (IGP), that the attack should not be given political coloration and called on the Police to beef up security in the state.
He said that his life has been under serious threat since the incident, adding that he only escaped the plot because he was not in the state on the day of the incident.
He said, “I don’t know what would have happened to my life if I was at home that night because I was their target. Me and my family no longer sleep with our two eyes closed because we have been terrified with the boldness in which they barged into our compound and sprayed bullets on cars and windows”, he lamented.
