Ten feared dead as Soludo urges security to unmask attackers of Senator Ubah convoy

By Okey Okey

Unconfirmed reports, Monday, revealed that at least ten persons reportedly died during the attacks on Dr Ifeanyi Ubah, Senator representing Anambra South.

Ubah's convoy was attacked by unknown assassins, along Enugwu-Ukwu, Njikoka LGA, leading to the death of his personal treasurer, Mr Ikechukwu Odum, and personal assistant, Mr Goodness Mathias.

According to sources, others killed during the attack were six Mobile Police Men who were parts of the convoy and a man driving one of Ubah’s cars.

"Another man killed, who was not in the convoy of the Senator was identified as Onowu Agu-Ukwu Nri. He is said to be a titled chief in neighbouring Nri community, and had just driven to Enugwu-Ukwu to drop someone who visited him, who would be traveling to Lagos this morning.

"He was unlucky to be at that point at the time when Senator Ubah was going to be attacked. He was driving a big jeep, so the assassins may have thought he was in the same convoy with the senator, and he was gunned down," the source added.

An eyewitness, added that "In the confusion yesterday, all the cars were just jamming each other. Since the vehicle the senator was driving in was a bullet proof car, his driver managed to manoeuver out of the damaged cars and drive away, even as it was being shot."

Meanwhile, governor Chukwuma Soludo has said that the security had been alerted to unmask and prosecute the perpetrators of the crime. 

The governor in statement signed by his Press Secretary, Mr Christian Aburime, condemned in strong terms, the attack, which he said was carried out by yet-to-be identified gun men on Senator Ubah's convoy.

" While condemning the attack, Governor Soludo said government is fully determined to wipe out every act of criminality in the State. He reiterated that 'this is the last ditched-effort of a sinking boat' by these criminal elements.

"He reassured that all security agencies are now on full alert to fish out the perpetrators of this heinous attack, who will be made to face the full wrath of the law. The Governor commiserates with Ubah and families of his aides who lost their lives as well as the State Commissioner of Police, for the Policemen who also lost their lives," he stated.
