A report by The Nation says a security official in the convoy of the immediate past Minister of Aviation, Princess Stella Oduah, has shot and killed three persons in Umuodu, Ochuche in Ogbaru local government area of Anambra State.
Several people were also reported to have sustained injuries during the incident. The tragedy which have been confirmed by the Anambra State Police Command, however, took a new twist as the police claimed no one died and only two people were injured.
Although, witnesses say the police claims are flawed. According to Ekekee.com, it is not yet known if Oduah was in the convoy when the incident happened.
Meanwhile, the state Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), DSP Uche Ezeh, has revealed that the individual who carried out the dastardly act have been apprehended by the police.
He also added that the attack was carried out by a member of a vigilante group attached to Oduah’s security, and not a policeman.
He said the police decision is based on information from members of the community, but he added as the force is not relenting on the case as investigations are ongoing to ascertain the cause of the incident.
Oduah was elected as a senator in Anambra on the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) platform and she is one of eight female senators to join the 8th Senate of the federation.
Two weeks ago, a Federal High Court in Lagos ordered Coscharis Motors Limited to release information regarding the controversial purchase of two bulletproof cars by the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) for Oduah, in 2013.
