Senator Ifeanyi Ubah narrowly escaped death after gunmen ambushed his convoy on Sunday, but some aides of the politician and police officers attached to him reportedly lost their lives.
Ubah, a governorship candidate of the Young Progressive Party in the last November’s election in Anambra State, represents Anambra South Senatorial District in the upper chamber of the National Assembly.
The incident occurred at Enugwu-Ukwu, in the Njikoka Local Government Area of the state.
Videos circulating on the internet showed gory images of police officers killed by the armed men.
The Media Assistant to the lawmaker, Kameh Ogbonna recounted the incident to newsmen.
He said: “This is an attempt on the Senator representing Anambra South Senatorial District, Dr Patrick Ifeanyi Ubah.
“We were passing Enugwu Ukwu junction when they hit us in front and back, from all sides and, as I speak with you, Obum, the special aide to the Senator, is dead and about seven security operatives were hit by the assassins’ bullet and they may have died”.
