Gunmen Attack Ex-CBN Governor Soludo, Kill Three Orderlies

The incident happened in Soludo’s home town in Isiofia in the Aguata Local Government Area of Anambra State.

An eyewitness said, “Gunmen disrupted an interactive session between Isuofia youths and Soludo at the town’s civic centre. Three policemen were reportedly shot dead in the meeting.”

A media aide to Soludo, who pleaded not to be identified, also confirmed the incident.

He said, “I can’t confirm the whereabouts of Professor Soludo. There was a stampede, I don’t know where Soludo is now.

“I only learnt that the state Commissioner for Public Utilities, Emeka Ezenwanne, was taken away but I have not heard about the whereabouts of Soludo.”

When contacted, the state Police Public Relations Officer, Ikenga Tochukwu, also confirmed the incident.

“The incident happened but as of now (8.15pm) I’m still gathering information about the incident,” he told Punch newspaper.

Soludo, of the All Progressives Grand Alliance, is a frontline aspirant in the November 6 governorship poll in the state.
