How gunmen attacked me, killed three police orderlies — Soludo

Former Central Bank Governor, Prof Chukwuma Soludo, has narrated how he narrowly escaped death when gunmen unleashed terror on him and his security aides on Wednesday evening.

Soludo also described the killing of three of his police orderlies as senseless while praying for the repose of their souls.


The PUNCH had reported that the ex-CBN governor was attacked in his hometown in Isuofia in the Aguata Local Government Area of Anambra State.

Soludo, of the All Progressives Grand Alliance, is a frontline aspirant in the November 6 governorship poll in the state.

He narrated his ordeal on Thursday night while featuring on Channels Television’s ‘Politics Today’ programme monitored by The PUNCH.

Soludo said, “We were having an interactive session and we finished the mass about 4pm and the scheduled interactive meeting with the Isuofia youths. By the way, Isuofia happened to be my hometown. I’m a village boy and this is where I feel safest anywhere in the world. I walk the street, I jog in my community, I take long walk, I am everywhere as a village boy.

With this interactive session, there were over a thousand youths seated and I was just making preliminary remarks to open up the interactive session with other dignitaries from the communities, commissioners and members of the house of assembly. And just as I was about to wrap up and I said, ‘Finally!’ for them to open up for comments and answers, gunshots! At first, I thought may be the policemen were shooting in the air with the kind of exuberance in the hall until I began to hear people screaming and we all scampered for safety.

“It took more than 10, 15 minutes of continuous gun battle. By the time we all came back, we saw three bodies there lying in the pool of their blood – they were the three policemen. May God grant their souls eternal rest. We will continue to pray and support their families.”

“I was totally unhurt, not in anyway hurt,” Soludo noted.


When asked whether the attack was linked with his ambition to become Anambra governor, the ex-CBN governor said, “I am friend with everybody contesting the office. I don’t think the office is worth the blood of even a chicken let alone a human being. I will be shocked that it was politically motivated and that it was aimed directly at me.”

He said investigation by security agencies will unravel the perpetrators of the heinous act while expressing worry over the kidnap of the state Commissioner for Public Utilities, Emeka Ezenwanne, during the attack on Wednesday.

Soludo appealed to the kidnappers to release Ezenwanne in the spirit of Easter celebrations.

Everybody should be investigated including Buhari and his fulani gang!
Looks like a hit squad has been sent to the south east to maim and kill independently minded politicians that have good chances of winning gubernatorial elections. They want to flood state houses in the south east with hoodlums and riffraffs like Hope Uzodinmma and co, so that nobody will disturb them as they pivot from oil to south east gas..

Soludo is the decisive nail on the coffin of the political ambitions of many mediocres in the Anambra political space. That's why they are desperate to get him out of the way. But it is too late for them.

So Buhari is to be blamed for the current attack on Soludo?

Why do you people like to blame others except yourself?

The utter maladministration by your messiahs government is the problem.. buharis government is the main cause of insecurity in the country. You guys voted for this imb-ecile and now we are all in danger.

Are you serious? So Igbos are innocent people who are independently incapable of evil acts?

All the chaos and violence in ala Igbo are the result of the machinations of foreigners ba?

Awkuzu SARS was sponsored by Buhari, Tinubu and El Rufai ba? All your young men and women trafficking drugs worldwide have been brainwashed by Tinubu ba since Igbos are the most innocent people in the world right?

When Igbo elders talk as irresponsibly as you do then what hope for the youths?

No wonder Igbo youths are now misguided, misbehaving seriously and generally going astray.

It is because charity never begins at home for most Igbos. It begins with others and in every land in the world outside the Igbo States in SE Nigeria.

Lol. The madman Kanu and his fellow lunatics have no blame whatsoever in the cocktail of problems facing ala Igbo currently ba?

We should assume no other region outside the SE is facing insecurity also since they don't host their own version of the lunatic Kanu and his demented followers called IPOB?

Just look at how you talk. A grown man, because of deep prejudice and hate against others, unable to call a spade a spade. Kanu and his fellow lawless insurgent Igbos are the main problem of Igbo land.

The fact the SW, SS and middle-belt have no equivalent of Kanu and IPOB just shows the aberrant nature of Igbos and your crass irresponsibility for attempting to put this on the FG alone even as we can all agree they are the main authority responsible for the unacceptable insecurity troubling Nigeria currently.

The lawlessness of Kanu and his followers, which is mostly majority of Igbos, is a big contributory factor to the uniqueness of the challenge the SE is currently facing.

Of course. As usual, Igbos will never act responsibly to nip this in the bud. They will blame everyone else but themselves and keep obsessing about the affairs of others while ala Igbo continues descending into guerrilla chaos and terror under the instigation of Kanu, IPOB and ESN.

When the worst has happened and ala Igbo is decimated, as was the case after the Civil war, they will begin another round of revising history fraudulently and blaming Yorubas for all that befell them even though we all witnessed their countless actions and inactions that got them where they landed.
