Gunmen yesterday attacked the convoy of Apostle Johnson Suleman along the Benin Auchi Road, Edo State, and allegedly killed seven persons including three policemen.

According to reports gathered that Suleman returned from a foreign trip and was heading to a destination in Edo State when the gunmen attacked his convoy around the Auchi area of the state.

During the attack, the gunmen reportedly opened fire on his convoy, allegedly killing three of his police orderlies and four other yet-to-be-identified persons.

Suleman’s lawyer, Samuel Amune, who confirmed the attack to newsmen, said the cleric just returned from a programme in Tanzania, adding that he escaped death by a whisker.
