PRESIDENTIAL candidate of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), Peter Umeadi has condemned the recent assassination attempt on the Senator representing Anambra South, Senator IfeanyiUbah, who was attacked last Sunday at NkwọEnugwu-Ukwu, Njikoka Local Government Area of Anambra state, during which about 10 persons were gunned down.

  Prof. Umeadi, in a statement signed by his media aide, Mr. IfeanyiAfuba, on Tuesday, described the attack as barbaric and noted that such do not represent the character of ndịAnambra or ndị Igbo.

   While expressing his heartfelt condolences to the families of victims killed in the tragedy, Prof. Umeadi, who is a former Chief Judge of Anambra State, specially condoled with the family of Chief OnyekozuluNnoli (OnowunaNri) whom the assassins also gunned down while he went to drop someone at the market that hour, as they mistook him to be part of Ubah’s convoy.

  “He was a gentleman and a lover of the arts who joined me at Nri on August 21, 2021, when I hosted poets from all over the country at the Return to Idoto 3 in honour of the late Christopher Okigbo. May his gentle soul and the souls of all that fell to the assassins’ bullets on that day rest in peace. Amen,” he said.

   Prof. Umeadi commended the efforts of those who rushed to render help to the victims after the shooting incidents.

  He called on the state police command and other security agencies in the state to intensify actions and investigations to ensure that those behind the attack, under any disguise, are apprehended and brought to book, to serve as deterrent to others.
