Posted by Thandiubani on Mon 12th Sep, 2022 - tori.ng

Ubah, who is also seeking reelection on the ticket of the Young Progressives Party, was attacked alongside his convoy at Nkwo Enugu Ukwu, Njikoka Local Government Area.

 
The All Progressives Congress in Anambra State has asked the federal government to investigate the attack on Ifeanyi Ubah, the senator representing the Anambra South Senatorial Zone.
 
Recall that Ubah, who is also seeking reelection on the ticket of the Young Progressives Party, was attacked alongside his convoy at Nkwo Enugu Ukwu, Njikoka Local Government Area while returning to Nnewi, his home town from a function.
 
Although not officially confirmed, it was gathered that no fewer than six policemen attached to the senator’s convoy were killed during the attack.
 
In a statement on Monday, the APC State Publicity Secretary, Mr Okelo Madukaife, condemned the attack and urged the security agencies to rise to the challenge of fishing out the masterminds and perpetrators.
 
Madukaife stated that success will be recorded only when government and security agencies, update the state regularly on steps of the investigation until it is concluded with results.
 
The party also commiserated with the families of the deceased and the Anambra State Police Command whose officers were killed in the attack.
 
The statement read, “The ferocious firearms attack on the motorcade of the Senator Ifeanyi Patrick Ubah, representing Anambra South Senatorial District and seeking reelection to the Senate, February 25, 2023, is ‘unAnambralike’ and condemnable.
 
“Since the end of Nigeria’s Second Republic, and invariably since creation, Anambra State has not witnessed any significant partisan political violence and that has counted positively for the state.
 
“We are unable to speculate, in the time being, regarding the motive of this dastardly act, which has claimed roughly half a dozen lives and left many injured, with vast properties destroyed.
 
“We would also resist the temptation to name suspects, and urge caution for those focusing only on trends of the recent past because it could be misleading in the circumstance.
 
“We condemn this action in very strong terms and urge the security agencies in the state to rise to the challenging, but inescapable task of fishing out the masterminds and perpetrators.
 
“We implore the state government to put on the garb of urgency in understanding that there is a lot of work to do on security issues in the state, particularly in the area of intelligence, stepping down distractions and side attractions.
 
“Our thoughts and prayers are with Sen Ubah, his family, and the political class of Anambra State who need to campaign in tranquility in the coming general elections.”
