The convoy of Benue State Governor, Dr Samuel Ortom was attacked by gunmen suspected to be bandits on Saturday.
According to The Punch, the incident happened at Tyo Mu along Makurdi/Gboko road sometime around noon.
Sources say the Governor was on his way to the state capital Makurdi when the gunmen opened fire on his convoy but were repelled by his security men.
The attack comes days after former Edo State governor and national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole, apologized to the governor for making spurious claims against him.
He has yet to reply the APC chieftain.
