The MP is reported to have been shot when he was returning from a campaign trip on Friday, October 9, 2020.
According to an eyewitness account, the MP was identified while the robbery was ongoing.
This, he said ‘angered’ the robbers who then blamed him for the problems being faced by people in the country.
“When the robbers started engaging the MP, then he [robber] said, ‘You politicians have made the country very hard to live in.’ “They brought all of us down and asked us to lie prostrate so we thought they were going to shoot us. One stated that we are not after your life…so they asked the driver why he didn’t stop when he was asked to,” he said.
