Gunmen on Wednesday attacked Prof. Charles Soludo, former governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) who has indicated interest in the November 6 governorship election in Anambra State.

Three policemen among the security aides attached to Soludo were shot dead in the attack.

Witnesses told Daily Trust that the gunmen disrupted an interactive session between some youths and Soludo at a civic centre in the town.

A media aide to Soludo, who pleaded not to be identified, confirmed the incident.

He said. “I can’t confirm the whereabouts of Prof. Soludo . There was a stampede, I didn’t know where Soludo is now.
