When alleged gunmen opened fire on Senator Ifeanyi Ubah’s convoy on Sunday at Enugwu-Ukwu community in Njikoka Local Government Area of Anambra State, an undetermined number of police officers were reportedly murdered.
For security reasons, sources in the community who do not want their identities published claim that when the gunmen began fire on the caravan, police operatives replied by firing back, and some of the cops were killed in the ensuing shootout.
Senator Ifeanyi Ubah was attacked today in Enugwu-Ukwu, according to a source. It was an intentional attempt. It wasn’t a spontaneous action.
“There were four or five police officers in the convoy when they were attacked.
“All of their weapons were gathered. About nine boys were involved in that attack’s leadership.
Another source claimed that six policemen were killed in the attack.
Ubah’s telephone line was unreachable at the time this report was filed, thus it was impossible to contact him for confirmation.
However, a close friend of the senator claimed, “It was an attempt on Senator Ifeanyi Ubah’s life. Although there are losses, he survived. In his convoy, a few police officers perished. We just had a conversation. Although he told me there were casualties, he is OK.
Toochukwu Ikenga, the state police command’s spokesperson, confirmed the incident but stated that the number of casualties was still undetermined.
He declared, “The Anambra State Command Commissioner of Police, Echeng Echeng, has led police personnel to the location where sporadic gunfire occurred in Enugwu-Ukwu.
Although the incident’s specifics are still vague, agents are on the scene conducting operations as the situation is being watched. If possible, please give further information.
