Legal Luminary,Ogwu James Onoja's Family Escapes Assassination Attempt, After Series Of threat To Life.

A renowned legal Icon and Senior Advocate of Nigeria's (SAN),wife,escaped death by whiskers at Bassa,along SHINTAKU -Lokoja-road, after the vehicle conveying her and the police escort was shot at severally by suspected assailant.

This is in addition to alleged threat to his life and kidnap by a prominent politician in kogi, and a petition written to the Inspector General of Police by the legal icon, on the 8th of April, to address his security situation while visiting the state.

Ogwu James Onoja aside the petition addressed to the police top heirachy, was also advised via sms by a good samaritan, of a concluded arrangement to exterminate the life of the legal guru, over flimsy political issues not to his knowledge.

Onoja's wife police detail was hurt and wounded by the gunshots at the vehicle conveying the wife,while they scamper for safety of their lives to Anyigba to lodge a formal complain to the local government police command,turned down by the area commander for mere lack of jurisdiction,without recourse to his colleague battered by gunshots.

Mrs Onoja was left with no choice than to ran for cover with the bullet ridden car to an unknown destination,rather than heed to the advise of the police command in Anyigba to return to the place of incidence.

James Onoja,a career legal practitioner,had no any form of alliance or association with the political class of any sort, either at the state or national level ,but was involved in series of communal activities to better the welfare of its people and immediate community as a stakehokder.

The activities of hired thugs,kidnappers,manslaught,murderers and hired assassins orchestrated by top governmemt officials in kogi, had been the other of the day,as recently a known media blogger and social crusader,Austin Okai accused the state government of attempt to use special anti robbery squad of the police(SARS), to frame and kill him of crime and criminally related activities.

Build up to the governorship election in November as well as the primaries billed for August this year,political tension had enveloped the ruling APC in kogi,and was involved in series of threats and harrassement to citizens in the state both at home and outside the state to garner support towards its re-election.

This is at the background of non perfomance,lack of payment of salaries and pensions as well as dearth infrastructural development.

The current administration has seen all and sundry, particularly the stakeholders as percieved enemies of the government, and had embarked on series of efforts to frustrate prominent individuals from erring their views.

The situation became worsened with rumour of defection of the governor to another party, aside the ruling APC,by the refusal of the national leadership of the party to allow the governor fly its ticket, over non perfomance by the current administration,as everybody become a target of oppression,intimidation and suppression from the government angle.

The politically motivated threat to life,kidnap and assassination became the other of the day,with the proliferation of armed thugs on the prowl . Kogi is a no safe state.
