CONTRARY to rumour making the rounds in some quarters, Governor of Anambra State, Prof. Chukwu­ma Charles Soludo’s coun­try home was not attacked by gunmen.

  Head of Soludo’s Media Office, Joe C. Anatune, made this known in a statement is­sued to journalists in Awka, yesterday.

  According to Anatunem, what happened was that the gunmen attacked a Police Observatory mount­ed along the Isuofia- Ekwulo­bia Road but Police repelled the attackers though some policemen sustained injuries during the attack.

  “The rumours being peddled around by some mischief makers that Prof. Chukwu­ma Charles Soludo, Anam­bra State Governor’s coun­try-home was attacked on Thursday night is not true. What actually transpired was that a new Police Obser­vation Point mounted along Ekwulobia Expressway was attacked in the late hours of Thursday, April 14, 2022. The Mobile Police person­nel posted to the point gallant­rily repelled the attack but unfortunately, three of them sustained gunshot injuries during the exchange of gun­fire with the attackers. However, with the Police quick deployment of opera­tives in the area, normalcy has since been restored with­in the vicinity,” the statement read.

  Anatune also said that the governor commended the gallantry of the security operatives for success­fully repelling the hoodlums while commiserating with those who sustained injuries while condemning the attack and describing it as very unfortu­nate and highly irresponsible.
