President Muhammadu Buhari has voiced concerns about the actions of armed groups around the nation, particularly in the Southeast.
The savage attack on the convoy of Senator Ifeanyi Ubah (Anambra South) at Enugwu-Ukwu village, Enugu State, on Sunday, left some people dead, including four policemen, prompted the President to express his worry on Wednesday.
In a statement issued by Mallam Garba Shehu, his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Buhari stated that his administration is actively following the situation and is awaiting updates.
He described the attack and the deaths as “barbaric and condemnable”, paying homage to the memory of the slain policemen and aides of the Senator as he commiserated with their loved ones.

“The nation has lost four brave policemen and other aides of the Senator.
“On behalf of the government and the people, I pay homage to these security men and the aides who were brutally murdered. Our thoughts and prayers are with their families at this difficult time,” he added.
