The hoodlums reportedly stormed the venue at about 9:00pm Sunday night and opened fire on customers in the lounge, the senator was taken away while several patrons at the bar were injured during the attack

One of the victims, Paul Ekwere, a media aide to one of the lawmakers in Akwa Ibom House of Assembly posted on his social media handles, “I have just been shot at along Oron Road. The incident occurred at about 9:00 p.m. on a Sunday night”.

The armed men stormed the sit-out with a Toyota Camry car and started shooting sporadically at random, sending the customers and other guests to scamper for safety before they made it straight to the former Senator.

“He was later whisked away by the hoodlums in a Toyota Camry car to an unknown destination.”
