Speaking to the press on the attack, Kameh Ogbonna, the Media Assistant to Ubah, said the senator was able to escape death because of the bullet-proof vehicle he was in.
“If not for the Bullet-Prove Jeep, the Senator was riding in he would have been dead by now. This is an attempt on his life,” Ogbonna said.
“We were passing Enugwu Ukwu junction when they hit us from all sides, and as I speak with you Obum, the Special Aide to the senator, is dead.
“About seven security operatives were hit by the assassins’ bullets and they may have died.”
