The lawmaker representing Anambra South Senatorial District in the National Assembly, Senator Ifeanyi Ubah, has reacted to the attack on his convoy.

Naija News had reported earlier that unknown gunmen on Sunday ambushed the lawmaker’s convoy in Enugwu Ukwu community, Njikoka Local Government Area of the state.

Some aides and security agents attached to the businessman were reportedly killed with many injured during the deadly attack.
