Maj. Gen. Lincoln Ogunewe (rtd), Imo governorship candidate of Action Alliance (AA) in the November 11 election, has commiserated with Sen. Rochas Okorocha over an attack on his convoy which resulted in the death of one policeman.
He made the commiserations in a statement he signed and made available to newsmen in Owerri on Friday.
DAILYPOST had earlier reported that Okorocha’s convoy was attacked by unidentified gunmen at the Ihube community on the Okigwe-Enugu expressway.
The attack on Sunday led to the death of a policeman attached to the ex-governor.
Ogunewe described the attack as “deliberate” and “unfortunate” and thanked God for preserving Okorocha’s life.
He described Okorocha as a great leader loved by all who walked on the streets of Imo and entered markets, with virtually everyone wanting to shake and hug him and wondering why he would be the target of such an attack.
“I woke up with the rude shock of the attack on the convoy of Sen. Rochas Okorocha in which a policeman was killed.
“It is rather unfortunate where politics is descending into, but I urge him to be strong and to know that God is protecting him.
“I condemn in very strong terms this attack and I hope that it will not be swept under the carpet no matter how long,” he said.
He prayed to God to grant the deceased policeman eternal rest and console his friends and family.
