The Vice Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in the 2019 election, Peter Obi, has called on security agents to apprehend those who attacked the former Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Charles Soludo and killed three police attached to him.
This is coming a month after Soludo declared his intention to run in the governorship race in Anambra State, in November 2021.
The former Governor of Anambra State while reacting to the development on his Twitter account wrote, “political violence should have no place in the democratic process in Anambra State.”
“The reported attack on Prof Charles Soludo in which some security agents were killed stands condemned. Political violence should have no place in the democratic process in Anambra State. The Ballot and not the Bullet should determine the outcome of our elections.”
“Meantime, security needs to be stepped up, and the culprits fished out and prosecuted to serve as deterrents to copycats.”
Meanwhile, an ally and aide to Soludo, Hon Pauly Onyeka, while speaking on the unpleasant event which led to the death of three policemen said the Anambra State governorship aspirant is safe.
