An unspecified number of police officers have been killed at the Enugwu-Ukwu community in Njikoka Local Government Area of Anambra State as yet-to-be-identified assailants opened fire on the convoy of Senator Ifeanyi Ubah.
Sources said the gunmen opened fire on the convoy, and police operatives in the convoy responded and about six policemen were gunned down in the shoot-out.
The incident happened late on Sunday.
Although details of the incident were still sketchy, according to various sources, it might be an assassination attempt on the senator.
A source said, “Senator Ifeanyi Ubah was attacked today by some hoodlums in Enugwu Ukwu. It was a calculated attempt. It wasn’t an impromptu action.
