Unknown gunmen today, Wednesday, 31st March, 2021, invaded Isuofia Town Hall, Anambra state where Professor Chukwuma Soludo, a gubernatorial aspirant under the platform of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) was holding a meeting with Isuofia youths.
A source at the scene who is a member of All Soludo Support Group told Anambra Broadcasting Service (ABS), 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 report of the incident, and will issue a statement shortly.
No group has claimed responsibility for today’s horrific action.
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.
