Mr Lawrence Okah, the house of the Secretary of the All Progressive Congress in Edo State, was early early attacked on Tuesday morning by suspected assailants.
Okah, who spoke with journalists on the incident, said he was lucky to be alive.
APC chieftain and governorship aspirant, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, who was at the scene of the incident on a solidarity visit, warned Governor Godwin Obaseki to call his men to order.
He warned that Edo should not be turned to a war zone.
Ize-Iyamu, who called the attention of the Inspector General of Police, Muhammed Adamu, and the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), to the attacks in Edo State, wondered why no arrest had been made.
“Since the beginning of these different attacks on our members in the state, we are surprised that no arrest has been made. Will the police say they don’t know about it? We know that if the police want to do their jobs they can do it perfectly, so we are calling on them to do their jobs and save our lives,” he said.
