Senator Dino Melaye has escaped death by the whiskers.
Gunmen invaded his house in the early hours of Saturday at Ayetoro-Gbede in Kogi State.
Reports say the gunmen numbering about 10 arrived the house at about midnight through the bush and opened fire on it from different directions.
Two of the vehicles parked in the estate were damaged by the hoodlums.
The Police Public Relations Officer in the state, ASP William Aya said the hoodlums escaped before the police arrived.
Reacting to the attack, Senator Melaye said the attempt to kill him will not stop him from speaking the truth.
