Senator Ifeanyi Ubah’s personal assistant, Goodnews Mathias, was one of his assassinated staff members.
A classmate of the deceased spoke on Monday night as mourners lamented the brutal attack that took place in Anambra on Sunday.
Gunmen ambushed Ubah’s convoy on Sunday night close to the Nkwo Enugwu Ukwu Market axis of the Njikoka Local Government Area.
As they traveled to Nnewi, the congressman for Anambra South, his aides, and security personnel came under fire.
Goodness’ companion, who wished to remain anonymous, informed DAILY POST that they both went to the University of Calabar (UNICAL), in Cross River State.
“He obtained a BSc in Fisheries and Aquaculture; hailed from Ika Local Government Area in Akwa Ibom State.
“His nickname is T.Boy, he was the personal assistant to Ubah; married and left two kids behind.
“He turned 40 years old in May; a loving person, easy going and always smiling.
“T.Boy worked for Ubah for about 15 years. The Senator gave him a car gift last year”, the source added.
The Young Progressives Party (YPP) chieftain confirmed that Goodness Mathias and Obum Ikechukwu died in the attack.
Some Police and Department of State Services (DSS) officers in the motorcade also lost their lives.
