The candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the November 6th governorship poll in Anambra State, Senator Andy Uba, on Saturday narrowly escaped being shot at.
The Eastern Updates gathered that the incident happened during a rally at the Ekwulobia Township Stadium in Aguata Local Government Area when a policeman on duty accidentally fired a gunshot.
A cameraman who was close to the scene narrated the cop was drunk as alcohol was oozing out of his mouth.
The Eastern Updates further gathered that a retired Deputy Inspector General of Police who was at the occasion had taken up the matter, with a view to ensuring disciplinary action against the erring policeman.

Uba, who later addressed the crowd, said he was in the governorship race to liberate the state from the shackles of underdevelopment it had been subjected to over the years by the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA).
According to him, Anambra became liberated the day President Muhammadu Buhari handed the party flag to him in Aso Rock.
‘My first assignment is the Enugu-Onitsha road; it is impassable. Work will begin on the road immediately. That is the essence of belonging at the centre,’ he said.
He urged his supporters to moblise for the party’s victory at the poll, saying the power to win election resides with the electorate.
