President Muhammadu Buhari has described as “barbaric and condemnable” the Sunday attack on the convoy of Senator Ifeanyi Ubah.
Buhari also mourned those killed in the attack which took place in Nkwo Enugwu-Ukwu community in Anambra.
“We are deeply concerned about the activities of armed groups in the region and in other parts of the country,” Buhari said in a statement released by his spokesman, Garba Shehu.
”We are 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.
“The nation has lost four brave policemen and other aides of the Senator.
“On behalf of the government and the people, I pay homage to these security men and the aides who were brutally murdered.
”Our thoughts and prayers are with their families at this difficult time.”
He prayed for the quick recovery of the Ubah and all those that were injured.
Buhari equally prayed for the early return of peace and security in Anambra and all other areas.
