Buhari Condemns Attack On Ifeanyi Ubah
KanyiDaily had reported how Senator Ubah narrowly escaped death after some gunmen attacked his convoy at Enugwu-Ukwu road in Njikoka Local Government Area of Anambra.
Senator Ubah survived after his bulletproof car was riddled with bullets, but he lost his police escorts and aides during the ambush on Sunday evening.
In a statement by Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and publicity, Garba Shehu, Buhari described the attack on Ubah’s convoy as “barbaric and condemnable”.
The president said, “We are deeply concerned about the activities of armed groups in the region and in other parts of the country.
“We are closely monitoring the situation and waiting for further details on the response to the worrisome situation by the police, the military and other security agencies.
“The nation has lost four brave policemen and other aides of the Senator.
“On behalf of the government and the people, I pay homage to these security men and the aides who were brutally murdered. Our thoughts and prayers are with their families at this difficult time.”
Buhari prayed for the quick recovery of the Senator and all those that were injured. He equally prayed for the early return of peace and security in Anambra State and all other areas.
KanyiDaily recalls that police had confirmed that two policemen and three civilians were killed when gunmen attacked Ifeanyi Ubah’s convoy while returning to his hometown in Nnewi, Anambra.
