“The rumours being peddled around by some mischief makers that Prof Chukwuma Charles Soludo, Anambra State Governor country home was attacked on Thursday night is not true
What actually transpired was that a new Police Observation Point mounted along Ekwulobia expressway was attacked late hours of Thursday, April 14, 2022
The Mobile personnel posted to the point gallantry repelled the attack but unfortunately three of them sustained gun shot injuries during the exchange of gun fire with the attackers.
However, with the police quick deployment of operatives in the area, normalcy has since been restored within the vicinity_l
Governor Chukwuma Charles Soludo has however commended the gallantry of the security operatives for successfully repelling the hoodlums while commiserating with those who sustained injuries.
He condemned the attack, describing it as very unfortunate and highly irresponsible.
