Andy Ubah condemns, describes attack on Senator Ubah as alien to Igbos

The candidate of the All Progressives Congress in the 2021 Anambra State governorship election, Senator Andy Uba, has condemned the attack on Senator Ifeanyi Ubah and his convoy.

Ubah, who represents Anambra South Constituency in the Red Chamber and also running for reelection in 2023 on the platform of Young Peoples Party, was attacked on Sunday while returning to Nnewi, his home town from a function.

In a statement on Monday, Uba said the attack was uncalled for, describing the maiming and killings as acts alien to Igbo culture.

He called on the government to do the needful by bringing peace and sanity to the state.

He said, “I commiserate with my brother and friend, distinguished Senator Ifeanyi Ubah and the families of his aides that lost their lives yesterday in Enugwu Ukwu, Njikoka Local government Area of Anambra State.

“The news came to me as a shock and I sincerely condemn the horrific attack.

“These attacks are uncalled for, and it is alien to Igbo culture to maim and kill humans.

“My thoughts and prayers are with you and the families of the victims. I urge the government to do the needful in bringing total peaceful sanity to our dear Anambra State.

“May the souls of the departed rest in peace and may God heal all those injured.”
