Unknown gunmen on Wednesday, attacked Soludo’s campaign team in Anambra state, killing three Police Officers, with yet to be identified man kidnapped.
The attack on Soludo’s campaign team and the killing of security operatives, is one out of many attacks on security operatives not just in Anambra state, but the entire South-East region by yet to be identified militia group.
Professor Soludo who is one of the Anambra State gubernatorial aspirants under the platform of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), is said to be in a safe house, after the deadly attack.
According to reports, the unknown gunmen on Wednesday, attacked Professor Chukwuma at a meeting venue with Isuofia Youths, killing his security aides and abducted one.
A source at the scene who is a member of All Soludo Support Group told reporters that Prof. Soludo is in a safe place at the moment, although he was at the venue when the gunmen invaded.
The source said three mobile policemen were killed on the spot by the gunmen, and a man close to the Soludo campaign abducted by the gunmen.
Anambra Police Command said they have received a report of the incident and will issue a statement shortly.
It could not be immediately ascertained if the attack was politically motivated, or if it could be linked to past weeks’ actions that have seen unknown gunmen attack and kill security personnel in Anambra state, and in other states in the South East.
