Policemen killed in Gunmen attack on Soludo


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.
