Bianca Ojukwu, widow of the late Biafran leader Chukwuemeka Odumegwu-Ojukwu, has condemned the Sunday attack on Senator Ifeanyi Ubah’s motorcade in Anambra.

Gunmen attacked Ubah’s motorcade at Nkwo Enugwu-Ukwu Junction in Njikoka Local Government Area of the state.

According to the police, five persons, including the lawmaker’s aides and police escorts attached to him, were killed in the attack.

Ojukwu, who is from Anambra South, said in a statement on Monday: “I mourn with the people of Anambra and Sen. Ubah over the horrific attack on his motorcade.

“Many lives were lost in this satanic ambush, folks who just set out for the day, just another ordinary day, but never made it home, their lives brutally cut short by heartless gunmen.”

Ojukwu added, “Their families are bleeding, Anambra is bleeding. We are all bleeding for this rain of bullets is falling on our collective roofs, and with each gruesome attack, another abominable threshold is crossed.”

Senator Uche Ekwunife (PDP-Anambra Central) also reacted, saying she received the news of the attack with shock.

“I condemn the incident in strongest terms. It is unimaginable. My condolences go to Ubah, the families of the police officers and his aides killed and injured in the attack,” she stated.

Ekwunife urged the state government and security agencies to do everything possible to arrest the perpetrators.
