The Senator representing Anambra South at the National Assembly, Senator Patrick Ifeanyi Ubah broke into tears over the weekend while beholding the corpses of two of his aides killed during an assassination attempt on him.

Recall that two of Senator Ubah’s close aides, Mr. Odum Ikechukwu, and Personal Assistant; Goodnews Mathias, alongside some policemen were gunned down by hoodlums during the assassination attempt on him at Nkwọ Enugwu-Ukwu, Njikoka Local Government Area of Anambra State, last month, while Ubah himself managed to escape in his bulletproof car.

It was gathered that the burials of the two aides, slated for this weekend, resonated the rueful mood, begining with Senator Ubah’s visit to Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu University Teaching Hospital, Amaku Awka, on Friday, to inspect their bodies.

According to a press release issued shortly after the visit by Senator Ubah, one of the aides, Odum who served as his Regional Manager would be buried in his hometown, Mbaukwu, Awka South Local Government Area of Anambra State; while his colleague, Goodnews, would be buried in his hometown in Ika, Akwa Ibom State.

“…I visited the Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu University Teaching Hospital, Amaku, to pay final respect to my late Personal Assistant, Mr. Goodnews Mathias whose body was set to depart for Akwa Ibom State where he will be buried.”
