Breaking: Governor Dave Umahi Narrowly Escapes Death As Gunmen Shoots Sporadically At Ebonyi Airport Site Governor of Ebonyi State, Engr. Dave Umahi, narrowly escaped death on Tuesday when unknown gunmen stormed the proposed Ebonyi International Airport site after receiving information that he might be visiting to inspect the level of work there. According to News Express, the gunmen raided the airport site around 3:30 p.m., but missed their target because the Governor did not turn up. According to a high-ranking source at the Ebonyi State Government House, the heavily armed men arrived on seven motorcycles and two cars. “When they arrived at the site, they opened fire, but God protected the Commissioner for Infrastructure Development, Engr Fidelis Nweze, who dashed to a nearby bush for cover after seeing the motorcycles, leaving his SUV Jeep behind. “After that, the gunmen broke into the Commissioner’s SUV and stole his laptop, architectural plan documents, and money,” the source said. “They fired on the air repeatedly and took over the site for a while while waiting for the governor to arrive.”
