Tension has heightened in Anambra State, following the kidnap of the Commissioner for Public Utilities, Emeka Ezenwanne, and killing of three policemen attached to a former Governor of Central Bank of Nigeria CBN, Prof. Charles Soludo, by suspected gunmen.

The incident happened about 5.30 pm on Wednesday during a political gathering organised by Soludo, at a civic centre in his hometown, Isuofia,  Aguata Local Government Area.

Soludo, an All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) chieftain and  frontline aspirant in the November 6 governorship poll in the state, was whisked away unhurt but some participants of the event were injured in the process.

A government official, who pleaded not to be named, said the gunmen arrived in a commando-like style in three vehicles.

He added that Soludo left the state immediately after the incident, adding, “nobody is safe here again. ”

Another eyewitness told bonybizblog  that one of the three slain policemen was a member of the disbanded   Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) in the state.
