Sheriff Oborevwori, the governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Delta, was on Sunday attacked by gunmen. 

Oborevwori was attacked along the Warri-Sapele highway on his way to Osubi, Okpe LGA of the state.

Confirming the incident in a statement issued on Tuesday, Dennis Otu, his chief press secretary, said a “bulletproof car saved the life” of the PDP candidate.

“The convoy of the Delta state PDP governorship candidate, Rt Hon Sheriff Oborevwori on Sunday, March 12th, 2023 came under heavy attack from unknown gunmen between Elume junction and Okuabude in Okpe Local Government Area of the State,” the statement reads.


“The car which he was driven in and security vehicles attached to the convoy were riddled with bullets in the incident that took place at about 9:05 pm. He had gone to Sapele for political meetings and on his way back to Osubi, the unknown gunmen ambushed the convoy and launched a heavy attack on him, spraying his car and backup vehicles with bullets.

“Only the Grace of God and the fact that he was riding in a bulletproof car saved the life of the leading governorship hopeful in the State.

“His brave security men rose to the occasion by engaging the gunmen suspected to be assassins in a duel which lasted for over ten minutes before the gunmen took to their heels and disappeared into the thick darkness of the night. Although no life was lost, one of the security men attached to the PDP governorship candidate sustained injuries.”


Otu said the incident has been reported to the police for investigation.
