A Nigerian top politician has reportedly escaped assassination attempt by hired killers at Ikot Oku Usung in Ukanafun Local Government Area of Akwa Ibom State.
The politician, Mr. Udoh Ekpenyong, a commissioner for Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs,  was trailed by the gunmen numbering four to his country home but as luck would have it he was not at home  during the attack and his younger sister was killed in his stead.
Soon after the killing, the hoodlums reportedly fled the scene and went on a shooting spree killing three other persons including a barber while escaping. 

Confirming the incident to our reporter in Uyo, the Akwa Ibom state capital, the source said, “We learnt that after the gunmen left the commissioners House they proceeded to the residence of the former commissioner of education, Mr. Matthew Edevbie Aniekan Akpan, but they did not see anybody in the compound, so they left”.
Meanwhile, the Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), DSP Bala Elkana confirmed the attacks explaining that the State Commissioner of Police, Mr. Zubairu Muazu, with some top police officers in the state visited the area.
“Four armed gunmen on motorcycle stormed the house of the Commissioner for Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs and shot the sister dead.
“And when they were fleeing and shooting sporadically on their way out, stray bullets killed two other persons in different locations. But in the Commissioner’s compound the only person that was killed is the sister.
“The CP is there already and we have sent our special forces there to investigate the matter in order to get to the root of cause of the attack.
