President MUHAMMADU BUHARI has condemned the armed shooting of the convoy of Senator IFEANYI UBAH, the Senator representing Anambra South District.
The President made this known in a statement signed by his Senior Special Assistant, GARBA SHEHU on Wednesday.
President BUHARI described the shooting as barbaric and condemnable, while noting that the government was concerned about the activities of armed groups in the south-eastern region and in other parts of the country.
The President also said that the government is closely monitoring the situation and waiting for further details on the response to the worrisome situation by the police, the military and other security agencies.
You would recall that Senator UBAH’s convoy was ambushed around 5 p.m. on Sunday, close to Nkwo Enugwu Ukwu Market, as it headed to Nnewi with five persons, including UBAH’S aides and police escorts attached to him being killed in the attack.
