Buhari made this known in a statement signed by the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, on Wednesday, September 14, 2022.

“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,” the statement partly read."
How it happened: Pulse reported that six people were killed when the convoy of the Senator representing Anambra South District was attacked by gunmen at the Enugwu-Ukwu community in Njikoka Local Government Area of the state on Sunday, September 11, 2022.
