Delta lawmaker shot, narrowly escapes death from armed robbers

A member representing Ughelli South Constituency in the Delta State House of Assembly, Reuben Izeze, on Thursday, narrowly escaped death following an attack by suspected armed robbers.

The robbers, numbering about six, reportedly shot the lawmaker at close range around 9:00 p.m during a visit to an old friend along Ekpan, Uvwie Local Government Area of Delta State.

It was learnt that the assailants locked his aide, identified as Dorume Stephen, in the booth of a car and also took his mobile phones away.

Izeze, who is Chairman, House Committee on Lands, Survey and Urban Development, is currently receiving treatment in an undisclosed medical facility in Warri.

The Delta State House of Assembly Speaker, Sheriff Oborevwori, after getting wind of the incident, reportedly visited Izeze in the hospital and was with him for about three hours to ensure he is put in stable condition.

When contacted, Izeze confirmed the incident to journalists just as he thanked God for sparing his life.
