According to the police spokesperson of the police in the state, Daniel Ndukwu, the politician was killed when the assailants in a Hilux vehicle attacked his campaign vehicle and set it ablazed.

But Nnamani, while sending his condolence to the bereaved family, he called security agencies to fish out the criminals and ensure they face the wrath of the law.

He, however, dismissed the notion that:

"Any suggestion that the deceased was favoured to win the election is ridiculous to say the least. It is only a party that thrives on deception and social media stunts that would claim it was about defeating a sitting senator and past two-term governor of the state with a candidate that was largely unknown (may his soul rest in peace). Indeed, the postponement will allow the world to see how it has been scammed by the Labour Party."

Nnamani, a former governor of Enugu state, said the suspension cannot stand a legal test because he was denied the right to a fair hearing.

According to Nnamani, he was neither invited for complaints nor given any query to respond to.
