The immediate past Minority Leader of the Senate, Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe, has condemned in very strong terms, the gruesome attack on Senator Ifeanyi Ubah by gunmen, describing it as despicable and evil.
Disclosing this in a statement in Abuja by his Media Adviser, Uchenna Awom, Senator Abaribe said that the sad incident which is one among many others across the country are clear indication of total collapse of security.
Senator Abaribe also said he would not want to read political motives behind the attack, but cautioned against such if that is the case saying no political aspiration is worth any human life.
He, therefore, called for a thorough investigation on this and other related ones to unravel the culprits and perhaps the motives for the rising attacks coming on the eve of the 2023 general elections.
Abaribe said, ‘It has become most expedient now for the authorities to deploy the best of our security and intelligence network across board to nip such incidences in the bud.
‘We must engender confidence and reassure Nigerians of their safety at all times.’
However, he condoled with Senator Uba, the Police authorities, and families of those who lost their lives in the fatal attack.
Similarly, Governor Chukwuma Charles Soludo has also condemned the attack.
While condemning the attack, Governor Soludo said the government is fully determined to wipe out every act of criminality in the State. He reiterated that ‘this is the last ditched-effort of a sinking boat’ by these criminal elements.
He reassured that all security agencies are now on full alert to fish out the perpetrators of this heinous attack, who will be made to face the full wrath of the law.
The governor, through a statement signed by his Press Secretary, Christian Aburime,
commiserates with Dr. Ifeanyi Ubah and the families of his aides who lost their lives as well as the State Commissioner of Police, for his gallant men who also died in the barbaric attack.
