Anambra State Governor, Chief Willie Obiano, on Wednesday announced that nine people who allegedly participated in the attack on former governor of the Central Bank and a front runner for the All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA) governorship ticket in the November 6, 2021 election, Prof Charles Chukwuma Soludo have been arrested.
Soludo was last month attacked by gunmen at his community, Isuofia in Aguata Local Government Area, during an interactive session with youths of the community.
Three policemen attached to him were killed during the attack, while a commissioner in Anambra State, Mr Emeka Ezenwanne, was abducted by the gunmen, but was later released.
Obiano, who disclosed this at the Prof. Dora Akunyili Women’s Development Centre in Awka, said: “What happened last month is unfortunate, but let me tell you, we have re-strategized and we are coming out like a smoking gun.
“We are not going to be taken prisoners. The nine people that attacked Prof. Soludo are in our net now. We will go after the others.
“We are not going to take prisoners any longer. A special squad have already been put together, and they are already working everywhere.”
