Following the gunmen attack on the former governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, Charles Soludo, the Anambra State police command has confirmed he is safe.

Soludo was attacked by unknown gunmen during a rally he held in Isuofia community in the Aguata Local Government Area of the state on Wednesday.

Gunmen invaded the venue, shooting sporadically into the air, and killing three of the security details of the ex-CBN governor.

The state police boss, Monday Kuryas, in an interview with Channels TV, said Soludo is safe. He, however, disclosed that the state Commissioner for Public Utilities, Emeka Ezenwanne, was abducted by the gunmen.

Kuryas said, ”The former CBN governor was holding a town hall meeting with the youths of his community called Isuofia in Aguata local government area of the state.

“Suddenly, unknown gunmen attacked my men that were providing security for him. In the exchange of fire, three of my men were killed but the Professor is safe.

“However, the Commissioner for Public Utilities, Engr Emeka Ezenwanne, was abducted in the process and my men are on the heels of the abductors.”
