Attack on Soludo politically motivated – APGA


The All Progressives Grand Alliance has accused political opponents of attacking its Anambra State gubernatorial aspirant, Prof. Chukwuma Soludo.

WuzupNigeria reported that the former governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria escaped death as gunmen succeeded in killing three of his police details.

Although Soludo in an interview on Channels TV played down suspicions that the attack was politically motivated, the National Coordinator of APGA Media Warriors, Chinedu Obigwe, thinks otherwise.

Speaking in Awka on Thursday,  Obigwe 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.”

Obigwe sympathised with the families of the killed cops and urged security agents to rescue the Commissioner for Public Uilities that was abducted by the gunmen.
