The Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, has condemned the recent attack on the convoy of a 9th National Assembly lawmaker, Senator Ifeanyi Ubah.
Naija News recalls that unknown gunmen attacked the Senator representing Anambra South Senatorial District on Sunday along Enugwu-Ukwu road in Anambra State.
It was gathered that the assailants ambushed the lawmaker’s convoy and opened fire on his cars but the senator managed to escape the attack despite his car being riddled with bullets.
Some police operatives and aides of the lawmaker were killed in the attack.
In a statement on Wednesday, Ngige described the attack as atrocious, wicked and evil, saying that the incident has disrupted the relative calm witnessed in the state in recent months.
The minister charged security agencies to go after the attackers and bring them to justice. He also thanked God for sparing Ubah’s life.
The statement reads: “Many had thought reprieve has come from the dreadful darkness that lately enveloped the State.
“We must not allow that daylight horror to trip our determination to the cross-hair of another cycle of tragedies. Evil must not win.
“Ndi-Anambra must not succumb to fear but rally round the government and the security agencies to track the criminals terrorising our State.
“I thank God for sparing Ubah’s life and prayed for His mercy on the families of the murdered aides and security personnel.”
