- EX-CBN GOV’s WHEREABOUTS UNKNOWN
It was a scene akin to a best seller horror movie, Wednesday evening, when some masked gunmen viciously attacked the political gathering of the ex-Central Bank Governor, Prof Chukwuma Soludo, leaving tears, sorrow and blood, at his Isuofia, Aguata country home of Anambra State.
By the time the dare devils were through, four police security guarding the venue were lying dead, with everybody scampering for safety.
Soludo, a governorship aspirant of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) in the forthcoming November 6, 2021Anambra election, was said to have been holding a political meeting with youths of his town at Isuofia Civic Centre, when the gunmen invaded.
Tochukwu Ikenga, Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), who confirmed the attack to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), Wednesday evening in Awka, said he “was sure of an attack in a gathering in Isuofia community where Prof. Soludo and other personalities gathered for a meeting,but not sure of the killings.”
“I can confirm that there was a gathering in Isuofia community where Prof. Soludo and other personalities gathered for a meeting on Wednesday, March 31, 2021.
But eye witnesses insisted that the attack was, indeed, bloody, leading to the death of four mobile police security guarding the venue. The witnesses squealed that the gunmen came in and made straight for the policemen, to prevent a possible reprisal, adding that Soludo was spirited away in the process.
The witnesses said they could not ascertain whether the ex-CBN Governor was actually seized by the invading gunmen or well wishers, noting that the scene was, indeed, that of horror./ SHARE THIS
