Ex-CBN Governor, Professor Charles Soludo
Twenty-four hours after gunmen attacked a former Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Prof Chukwuma Soludo, he stated the operation lasted for greater than 10 minutes.
Bandits had opened fireplace throughout a city corridor assembly on the Isuofia neighborhood in Aguata Local Government Area of Anambra State, killing three of his safety aides.
But Soludo, who spoke on Thursday throughout an interview on Channels Television’s Politics Today narrated how gunmen attacked him.
“When it was all over, it took several minutes, 10 or 15 minutes of continuous gun battles going back and forth of stopping, starting again,” Soludo stated.
“By the time we all came back, we saw three bodies lying in the pool of their blood. They were the three policemen. May God grant their soul eternal rest.
“At first I thought, maybe the policemen were shooting in the air. Until I began to hear people screaming and all of that and everybody just scampered for safety.
“Just as I was about to wrap up the town hall meeting and said finally for them now to open up for comments and answers, there were gunshots.”
While commiserating with the households of the slain officers, Soludo promised to help them.
He described the assault as mindless, noting that no political workplace ought to be well worth the blood of a rooster, how a lot a human life.
