Soludo attack: Police nab nine suspects



NINE persons suspected of participating in the recent gun attack during a town hall meeting, organised by former Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) Governor, Prof Charles Soludo in his Isuofia, Aguata Local Government Area, have been arrested by detectives from Anambra Police Command.

  Gov. Willie Obiano disclosed this yesterday at Prof Dora Akunyili Women’s Development Centre in Awka, during the public presentation of ‘Governor Willie Obiano: Seven years of delivering good governance in Anambra State’

  The governor made the announcement in company of heads of security agencies in the state.

  According to the governor, not only was the attack a needless distraction but it has served as an avenue to demonstrate that criminal elements cannot hide anywhere in the state. 

  “What happened last month was unfortunate, but let me tell you, we have restrategised and we are coming out like a smoking gun. We are not going to take prisoners. The nine people that attacked Prof Soludo are in our net now. We are going to eliminate them. We will go after the others. We are not going to take prisoners any longer. A special squad has already been put together, and they are already working everywhere,” he said.

  It will be recalled that Soludo, who many tip to clinch All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) ticket, was attacked in Isuofia by some gunmen during a town hall meeting with youths last month. Although Soludo was unhurt, three of his police orderlies were killed while others were injured.

  Commissioner for Public Utilities, Emeka Ezenwanne, was also kidnapped by the gunmen who released him after some days.
