It was an ambush. His convoy was taken unawares.
Heavily armed bandits have attacked the convoy of Senator Ifeanyi Ubah representing Anambra South Senatorial District at the National Assembly killing at least seven persons.
His car is bulletproof, so the driver managed to manoeuvre under a heavy and steady bombardment to escape.
The escort pickup with police came face to face with the assassins and engaged them squarely.
The other backup vehicles were unlucky as they were caught up. Many aides and police were killed. Some sustained gun wounds.
The police escort was brave, they got some of them and killed one. But they took the body away.
It was gathered that three of his aides were killed while three security operatives also died during the ambush.
Witnesses at Enugu-Ukwu town used their smartphones to video the affected vehicles that included SUVs and security escort vehicles whose drivers were shot dead and the engines were still steaming with the full headlamps on.
The men that were down during the scenario of the attack by the unidentified gunmen are His Treasurer, Mr Ikechukwu Odum, his assistant Mr Goodness Mathais, A friend, five (5) of his mobile policemen, and A driver.
Indeed God is with Senator Ifeanyi Ubah.
