Around 10 people were said to have died in the convoy of the senator representing Anambra South, Senator Ifeanyi Ubah on Sunday night attack.

Details gathered by INFOXCLUSIVE show that a portion of the departed people have been identified.

However Anambra State Police command had in a phone call with its spokesperson, DSP Toochukwu Ikenga denied information on the specific number of people killed, sources said around 10 people died in the attack, which was thought to be an assassination attempt.

A source said: “Senator Ifeanyi Ubah lost his personal treasurer, Mr Ikechukwu Odum who is his most trusted aide. He also lost his personal assistant, Mr Goodness Mathias.

“Another man killed, who was not in the convoy of the Senator was identified as Onowu Agu-Ukwu Nri. He is said to be a titled chief in neighbouring Nri community, and had just driven to Enugwu-Ukwu to drop someone who visited him, who would be traveling to Lagos this morning, and he was unlucky to be at that point at the time when Senator Ubah was going to be attacked.

“He was driving a big jeep, so the assassins may have thought he was in the same convoy with the senator, and he was gunned down.”

Others identified to have been killed were six Mobile police officers who were riding in the convoy of the Senator, and a driver, who was supposed to be driving one of Ubah’s vehicles.

The attack has been portrayed as an assassination attempt on the senator, as eyewitnesses said the gunmen designated each vehicle in his convoy, particularly his security men, and baffled them with bullets.

“In the confusion yesterday, all the cars were just jamming each other. Since the vehicle the senator was driving in was a bullet proof car, his driver managed to manoeuver out of the damaged cars and drove away, even as it was being shot,” the source narrated.
