Nnamani, Andy Ubah commiserate with Senator over attack, murder of aides
The All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate in the 2021 governorship election in Anambra State, Dr. Andy Uba, has commiserated with Senator Ifeanyi Ubah over the attack on his convoy on Sunday in Enugwu Ukwu, Njikoka Local Council of Anambra State, where his aides were killed.
In a statement made available to journalists, Andy Uba said the news came to him as a shock, adding that the attack was highly condemnable.
“I commiserate with my brother and friend, Ifeanyi Ubah, and the families of his aides that lost their lives.
“The news came to me as a shock and I sincerely condemn the horrific attack.
“These attacks are uncalled for and it’s alien to Igbo culture.
“My thoughts and prayers are with you and the families of the victims, ” he said.
He urged government to do the needful in bringing total peace and sanity to the State.
He prayed that the souls of the departed would rest in peace, as well as for God to heal those injured.
Also, former Governor of Enugu State and Senator representing Enugu East in the Senate, Dr. Chimaroke Nnamani, has commiserated with his colleague, Senator Ubah over the murder of his aides.
Armed men were said to have ambushed Ubah’s convoy and killed his security aides. The Senator escaped the bandits’ bullets inside his bulletproof car.
Reacting to the incident, Nnamani condemned the attack and urged security operatives not to leave anything to chance in bringing masterminds of the heinous crime to justice.
He wondered what caused the unprovoked attack on Ubah at a time all right thinking members of the society were brainstorming on how to work together to bring peace and development to our communities.
Nnamani said: “Arms struggle or violent crime of any kind is alien in Igbo land. It is not part of our history. The Igbo man is known for his industry and creativity and not violence.
“I condemn this sordid act in its entirety. I urge our people to cooperate with security operatives to fish out the criminal elements in our midst. No citizen should be hindered from moving freely to carry out his or her legitimate businesses in the country.”
He urged Ubah not to be deterred by the attack and murder of his aides, but rather be strengthened to continue to serve his constituents and country diligently. This, he said, is necessary to ensure victims of the attack do not die in vain.
