A former governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Charles Soludo, has reacted to the killing of three policemen guarding him.

Recall that the incident occurred on Wednesday, March 31, at Isuofia, Aguata Local Government Area of Anambra State during a meeting with the youths of the community.

Speaking on the attack, Soludo said he would not like to conclude the attack was ‘politically motivated.

He said: “We finished the diocesan crescent mass at about 2 pm, and by 4:00 pm, they scheduled an interactive town-hall meeting with the Isuofia youths.

“And by the way, Isofia happens to be my hometown. I’m a village boy; this is where I feel safest anywhere in the world. I walk the streets, I jog on the streets, I take long walks, I mean I’m everywhere as a village boy as it were.

“With this interactive session with over a thousand youths seated, and I was just making preliminary remarks to open up the interactive session with other dignitaries from the community, commissioners, and members of the House of Assembly, former commissioners, former members of the house, and several other dignitaries were in attendance.”

He said the DSS, police, army, and civil defense were all in his house, adding that he was totally unhurt. On the attack being politically motivated, Soludo said that he did not want to prejudge or preempt the investigation that is ongoing.

He said: “I think there are all kinds of theories as it were, I do not want to prejudge or preempt the investigation that is ongoing because I understand some persons have been apprehended and also providing useful information.”
