.Soludo reassures on security

By Okey Maduforo, Awka

Fear grips indigenes and residents of Isuofua community in Aguata Local Government Area of Anambra State, as gunmen allegedly killed a policeman in the area on Friday April 15, 2022.

Isuofua is the country home of the state Governor, Prof Charles Soludo.

It would be recalled that three weeks ago the gunmen had attacked the Aguata Local Government Area, burning down four buildings at the council headquarters.

While the gunmen allegedly killed the policemen along the Isuofia road, the State Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Ikenga Tochukwu, contended that nobody was killed but confirmed that three policemen were injured.

This is coming 24 hours after a similar attack by the gunmen occured at Nteje town in Oyi Local Government Area, which led to the death of one of the gunmen.

But Governor Soludo has reassured residents in Anambra State and those coming home of a crime-free Easter celebration.

According to him, the Joint Security Operations in the state had been charged to counter any form of violent crimes in the state, adding that most of the camps where the gunmen operate from had been bursted and more arrests had been made.

It was however gathered that the policeman was killed at a junction leading to the governor’s house.

A source in the community said that the gunmen stormed the junction, where security operatives were stationed, and attacked them.

“The hoodlums stormed the area, shooting non-stop, while residents scampered for safety.

“One policeman was however killed in the process,” the source said.
