Unidentified gunmen on Thursday attacked the convoy of Hon. Chris Azubogu, member representing Nnewi North/Nnewi South and Ekwusigo Federal Constituency of Anambra State, killing one of his drivers.
Azubogu was attacked on Nnewi – Nnobi Road on his way back to Nnewi from Awka after his formal declaration for the All Progressives Congress (APC).
An eyewitness said the attack occurred in front of St Paul’s Angican Church, Nnobi, in Idemili South Local Government Area of the state.
The driver of one of the vehicles with registration number, Abuja ABC 307 CM was said to have been shot dead instantly, while the black car in which Hon Azubogu was supposedly driven had several gun shots.
Newspapers and documents bearing ‘Mr. Project’, Azubogu’s pet name were among other documents that littered the road and onlookers were around talking about the incident.
The gunmen were also said to have collected guns from security men at Roban Stores situated along Nnewi –Nnobi road after attacking the lawmaker’s convoy and zoomed off.
In the meantime, Anambra State Police Command is yet to confirm the incident.
