Anambra election: Soludo dedicates victory to three police officers killed by unknown gunmen
The Anambra State Governor-elect, Professor Charles Chukwuma Soludo has dedicated his victory at the just concluded gubernatorial election in the state to three policemen who were gunned down during a town hall meeting in his hometown.
Professor Charles Chukwuma Soludo, the former governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, was attacked by unknown gunmen in April 2021 during a town hall meeting in his hometown of Isuofia in the Aguata Local Government Area of the state, leading to the death of three police officers.
Speaking on Wednesday morning after he was declared winner of the governorship poll, Soludo of the All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA said his victory calls for the remembrance of the slain officers.
Soludo, who prayed for the souls of the officers to continue to rest with the Lord, also lauded the Federal Government for allowing the people of Anambra State to make their choices during the election.
He said, “At this moment we must remember and must continue to remember all those who died during the course of this moment, especially the three policemen who were killed by unknown gunmen during our town hall meeting with youths in my ward. May God continue to grant their soul eternal rest.
“The election itself tested the integrity of our federal institutions. Many times there were tensions, especially as one party boasted that it must take or ‘conquer’ but the judiciary stood for the integrity of the judiciary”.
