Chris Azubogu, the House of Representatives member representing Nnewi North/South/Ekwusigo Constituency of Anambra State, has talked about a recent attack targeted at him.

The lawmaker, on Saturday, took time to reflect on the attack on his convoy by gunmen.

Azubogu, while recalling how his driver was killed in the attack on September 30, 2021, at Nnobi, in the Idemili South Local Government Area of Anambra State, said he had shelved an award in his honour by the Ohanaeze Ndigbo on Saturday.

He expressed sadness that it was the first day at work for the late driver who was brutally killed in the attack.

The lawmaker explained that he shelved the award in his honour by the Anambra State chapter of the Ohanaeze Ndigbo, on Saturday.

He further canvassed greater support for security agencies to enable them to protect lives and property, while commending the government’s onslaught against violent crimes.

He said, “Exactly a year today, my convoy was viciously attacked by unknown assailants at Nnobi in the Idemili South LGA of Anambra State in a swift operation in which I was believed to be the principal target.

“As God would have it, I was not in the convoy which was coming to pick me from the airport. Quite unfortunately though, one of the drivers in the convoy, Mr Ikechukwu, was killed in the attack. May his soul continue to rest in peace. Amen!

“The very sad curve for me was that the late Ikechukwu actually resumed work the same day he was brutally killed; after he had reached out to my chief driver who helped him secure the much needed job through which he had planned to fend for his young family.

“It was traumatic each time one remembers that a young man who strives to feed his family from the proceeds of a legitimate job was killed by heartless criminals who take liberty in destroying what they cannot create.

“Each time I mull that attack, I couldn’t help but wonder what could be the gain for people who have developed the penchant to waste human lives they cannot create.’’
