No fewer than ten people have been killed including eight police escorts in the convoy of Ifeanyi Ubah, the Senator representing Anambra South senatorial zone, when gunmen attacked his convoy at Enugwu Ukwu in Njikoka local government area of the state on Sunday.
An eye witness said the senator was reportedly injured in the attack in what some have described as an assassination attempt on the former Anambra governorship candidate of Young Peoples Party, YPP.
“Ifeanyi Ubah’s convoy came under attack in Enugwu Ukwu this evening. He was ambushed by heavily armed men who opened fire on his convoy. Some of his aides were killed, including some police officers.
“The senator managed to escape as his car was riddled with bullets.
“I was driving up to that spot from the link road to the express when some people in a shop shouted at me and asked me to turn back and take another road, which I did,” the eyewitness recounted.
