Anambra: Gunmen Who Attacked Senator Ifeanyi Ubah’s Convoy Arrested; 15 Shops, Vehicles, Set Ablaze In New Attack

Professor Charles Soludo, Governor of Anambra State, revealed on Friday, October 21, 2022, that the murderous gunmen who attacked the convoy of Senator Ifeanyi Ubah, have been arrested.

Soludo announced this heart-warming news just when the Amorka Community in Ihiala Local Government Area of the State came under attack by rampaging gunmen  Thursday night. In the attack which sent the villagers, passersby and motorists running for their dear lives, 15 shops were completely razed down, and a number of Vehicles set ablaze.

No reason has been adduced for the tragic attack.

Ubah miraculously escaped death about a month ago, thanks to God and his bullet-proof SUV, when gunmen ambushed, and swooped on his convoy  as he was passing Enugwu Ukwu Community. He was a target for assassination.

In the attack,  Ubah lost six people who included four security personnel attached to him, and two of his personal aides.

But speaking on Friday at Enugwu Ukwu, the same Community where Ubah’s convoy was attacked, Soludo, who attended a funeral ceremony, revealed that some of the murderous gunmen have been arrested while security agents are on the trail of those  still at large.

Soludo: “Three weeks ago, it was in this same Community that some elements chose to attack Senator Ifeanyi Ubah. I want to tell you that we have arrested a number of those involved in that attack. We are still on the trail of the remaining people.

“We will not let people like that define who we are. This is Anambra State, and we are peaceful people. We must embrace peace, even in the coming election. Anambra is peaceful. Anambra is safe.

“We have chased away bad elements in the State. The pockets of crime you hear are just a small number of tye bad elements left. They will not disappear in one night. Even in civilized places, there are still few bad element.”

The attack on Senator Ubah shook the South-east to its foundation, almost, confirming that nobody is safe.
