Attack On Soludo Is Politically Motivated – APGA

Attack On Soludo Is Politically Motivated – APGA (Updated: Friday, 2nd April 2021, 11:15 AM)


The All-Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) has alleged that the recent attack on the former governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Professor Chukwuma Soludo, on Wednesday was politically motivated.

The party in a statement in Awka, the Anambra state capital on Thursday, the National Coordinator of APGA Media Warriors, Chinedu Obugwe, said, “The attack on Soludo at Isuofia Civic Centre by yet-to-be-identified gunmen was a politically motivated assassination attempt.

“To unmask those behind the attack, there is a need for security agents to beam their searchlight on Soludo opponents. Soludo’s miraculous escape from the assassins has shown that the hand of God is upon his life.

“Some people are seeing the forthcoming November 6 governorship election as a do-or-die affair and some of them are of the belief that Soludo’s emergence as Governor Obiano’s successor will send them to political retirement hence the reason why eliminating him is a viable option for them.”

The party also sympathized with the families of the slain cops and urged the security agents to rescue the Commissioner for Public utilities, who was abducted by the gunmen.

Meanwhile, Naijakit reported that the Anambra State Police Command has said that it has arrested four suspects in connection with the attack on the former CBN Governor.

The command’s Spokesman, Deputy Superintendent of Police Toochukwu Ikenga, confirmed the fresh arrest in a statement issued in Awka on Thursday.

Ikenga gave the names of the four suspects as Mbah Victor (30), John Olisakwe (21), Chigozie Omeh (20), and Emmanuel Nnobi ( 28).

“The suspects confessed to have actively taken part in the attack and subsequent abduction of the Commissioner for Water and Public Utility, Mr. Emeka Ezenwanne,” the statement states.

It was further stated that the command had intensified efforts to rescue the commissioner.

According to a report, Soludo was attacked by gunmen at a political gathering in his Isuofia hometown in Aguata Local Government Area on Wednesday.
