A source told Daily Post that it was Mr Val Ozigbo, Labour Party chieftain, who would have been attacked but Uba’s convoy had overtaken him and then ran into the abductors’ net.

“Val Ozigbo was coming back from Owerri with members of his family when he suddenly saw a convoy driving ferociously toward his own convoy, and attempting to edge him off the road. He quickly told his driver to clear off the road let the other convoy pass by.

“Shortly after they overtook Ozigbo, they ran into the gunmen at UGA junction who started shooting, and killed two policemen.

“Ozigbo who parked while the incident was happening, later learnt that the convoy that was attacked was that of Uba,” the source said.

Reacting to the development through a statement, the Public Relations Officer in Anambra State, DSP Tochukwu Ikenga, confirmed the attack, added that the Command has already swung into action.

According to Ikenga, the police has recovered a Lexus SUV which the gang operated and an AK-47 rifle. He also vowed that killers of the two police officers must be apprehended.

“The Commissioner of Police, CP Aderemi Adeoye who had declared the weekend and Christmas holidays as special working days for all Officers and men in the Command commended all personnel for their tireless and courageous effort in securing the people of Anambra State.

“He urged them not to be demoralized by the supreme price paid by their colleagues from Enugu State Command but to draw inspiration from their bravery in confronting the criminal gang,” Ikenga said.
