Former Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF)) Chief Olu Falae, on Tuesday escaped death by whiskers when a policeman allegedly fired a gunshot at his car along Akure-Ilesa Expressway. Falae was said to be on his way to Ile-Ife, where he wanted to join other leaders of Afenifere on a courtesy visit to the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi when the incident occurred. Falae while narrating the incident to journalists in Ile-Ife before the Afenifere's meeting with Oba Ogunwusi on Tuesday, he said "then I was kidnapped, now they want to kill me."

He explained that "I was coming from Akure approaching Ilesa. I saw some vehicles ahead of me. There was a bullion van in front. The vehicles ahead of us were overtaking the bullion van and we too followed. "I nearly passed them when I heard a shot and I heard a bang on my car. We stopped and we saw that they have fired at our car. "I am entertaining fear over continuous attack on me. I don't know why I was kidnapped recently, why I was arrested in 1997 and locked up for two years."
