More suspects have been arrested in connection to the failed assassination of the former governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Prof. Chukwuma Soludo.

Reports reaching Naija News at this time confirmed that nine persons suspected to have taken part in last month attack on the citizen have been arrested.

Recall that Prof. Soludo while interacting with youths of  Isuofia, a community in the Aguata Local Government Area of Anambra in the last month, got attacked by some unknown gunmen. Three policemen were killed during the attack, while a commissioner in Anambra State, Mr Emeka Ezenwanne was abducted by the gunmen, but later released.

However, on Wednesday (today), Anambra State governor, Chief Willie Obiano disclosed that nine persons suspected to be part of the attack have now been apprehended and will not be spared.

Obiano who disclosed this at the Prof. Dora Akunyili Women’s Development Centre in Awka said: “What happened last month is unfortunate, but let me tell you, we have restrategized and we are coming out like a smoking gun.

“We are not going to take prisoners. The nine people that attacked Prof Soludo are in our net now. We are going to eliminate them. We will go after the others.

“We are not going to take prisoners any longer. A special squad have already been put together, and they are already working everywhere,” Obiano noted.

Meanwhile, the Federal Executive Council (FEC) on Wednesday did not discuss the scandal rocking the Minister of Communication and Digital Economy, Dr Isa Pantami.

There have been growing calls for President Muhammadu Buhari to sack the minister over comments praising terrorists organization and their leaders.

The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, who briefed State House correspondents on the outcome of the council meeting, said the issue was not raised at all.
