Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has condemned the recent attack on the former Central Bank of Nigeria Governor, Chief Chukwuma Charles Soludo, describing it as callous, intimidation and unnecessary.
The party said the killing of the three policemen attached to the former CBN governor was criminal and uncalled for, saying the police officers were doing their legitimate duty at the time of the incident.
Honourable Ikechukwu Emenike, the Anambra South PDP Youth leader, who stated this in an interview with newsmen in Isuofoa, yesterday, said the gunmen disrupted Soludo’s interactive session with youths of Isuofia, who were gathered at the Isuofia Civic Center, shot dead three policemen and abducted Engineer Emeka Ezenwanne, the commissioner for Public Utility in the state who jumped into the hands of the members of the gunmen who surrounded the place as he tried to escape from the center.
Emenike, who lamented that the incident had thrown the Isuofia town into fear and uncertainty urged the Anambra State government to beef up security in the state adding that lives of politicians, aspirants and the ordinary citizen appears no longer safe with the attacks and killings in the state.
He noted that the gunmen allegedly believed to be IPOB/ESN members surrounded the building on arrival, in a way that nobody knew they had arrived to cause mayhem and to kill, stressing that as the shooting was becoming sporadic, everybody in the place ran away for their lives.
Emenike, who was a former Chairman of Umueze Community, Soludo’s village, urged the youths of the area to remain calm and continue to be peaceful as police investigation is said to be ongoing over the attack.
