Sen. Ifeanyi Ubah’s convoy was recently attacked, and that act has been denounced by Minister of Labor and Employment Chris Ngige.
According to Anaedoonline.ng, on Sunday along the Enugwu-Ukwu route in Anambra State, unidentified gunmen attacked the senator who represents the Anambra South Senatorial District.
According to reports, the attackers ambushed the lawmaker’s convoy and started shooting at his automobiles, but the senator was able to flee the scene despite having bullet holes all over his vehicle.
The incident claimed the lives of some police officers and the lawmaker’s assistants.
Ngige called the attack “atrocious, cruel, and terrible” in a statement on Wednesday, noting that it had disturbed the state’s previous period of comparatively quiet conditions.
The minister charged security agencies to go after the attackers and bring them to justice. He also thanked God for sparing Ubah’s life.
The statement reads: “Many had thought reprieve has come from the dreadful darkness that lately enveloped the State.
“We must not allow that daylight horror to trip our determination to the cross-hair of another cycle of tragedies. Evil must not win.
“Ndi-Anambra must not succumb to fear but rally round the government and the security agencies to track the criminals terrorising our State.
“I thank God for sparing Ubah’s life and prayed for His mercy on the families of the murdered aides and security personnel.”
