Mr Kameh Ogbonna, media aide to Senator Ifeanyi Ubah, representing Anambra South Senatorial District at the upper chamber, has revealed how his boss’ bulletproof vehicle saved him during the attack on him in Anambra state.
Gunmen, suspected to be assassins, had on Sunday launched a heavy attack on the convoy of the politician, killing some of his aides and some police escorts.
Reacting, Ubah’s spokesman in a statement confirmed the death of an aide, who lost his life during the incident.
He said bullets from the alleged assassins hit some police operatives who engaged the gunmen during the incident that occurred in Enugu State.
“If not for the bulletproof jeep the senator was riding in, he would have been dead by now.
“We were passing Enugwu-ukwu junction when they hit us from all sides and as I speak with you, Obum, the special aide to the senator is dead.
“About seven security operatives were hit by the assassin’s bullet,” he stated.
