Anambra Civil Society Group Condemns Bloody Attack on Senator Ubah, Calls for Improved Security Nationwide



The Anambra Civil Society Network (ACSONET), a civil society organization, has condemned the attack by yet-to-be identified gun men on the convoy of the Senator representing
Anambra South Senatorial Zone,
Dr Patrick Ifeanyi Ubah.

The incident which reportedly took place around Enugwu-Ukwu road in Njikoka Local Government Area of Anambra State, on Sunday evening left a number of aides and police personnel dead, with many others injured.

The Chairman of the group, Prince Chris Azor, while condemning the attack, called for further strengthening of the security architecture in the State, and indeed the entire country.

According to the civil Society advocate, inasmuch as the State Government under Prof Charles Chukwuma Soludo is doing its best to contain insecurity challenges of the State, the Federal Government has a statutory role to play in tackling the ugly situation.

“The Federal Government has the primary responsibility to ensure security and welfare of citizens. It’s therefore, high time President Buhari woke up to his responsibility of assisting the State Government in curbing this obvious menace” he said.

“Citizens are also, enjoined to work as a collective in supporting the government’s efforts at ensuring security and safety of lives and property. We need to take back our heritage as a people by forming a web of defense to protect our neighbourhoods. Patriotic Citizens should see something, and not only say something but do something” he said.

He implored security agencies to endeavour to fish out the perpetrators of the cowardly act and make them face the full wrath of the law.

Comrade Azor in the release, commiserated with families of the deceased, while appealing that Government should come to their aid, and ensure adequate care and rehabilitation for the injured.
