His attack came few hours after the party pronounced him as running mate ahead of the 2019 polls.
According to The Nation, some Hoodlums raided his HUDCO Quaters home in Makurdi with knives, axes, cutlasses and clubs suspected to be cultists at about 4 a.m yesterday.
Confirming the incident on phone to The Nation, Ode said he was not at home when the hoodlums stormed his house.
“My security guards told me that some men armed with knives, axe, clubs and other weapons forced their way into my house and asked after me, even though I was not at home. I suspect they were after my life,” he said.
The former minister said the matter was reported to security agencies.
