Activities of ‘Unknown Gunmen’, a far departure from agitations – Soludo


Governor Charles Soludo of Anambra State has said that the nefarious activities of the so-called ‘Unknown Gunmen’ are contrary to any form of political agitations.

POLITICS NIGERIA reports that security in Nigeria’s South-east has deteriorated in recent times with attacks by armed persons reported almost on a daily basis across the region.

Anambra State has witnessed some of the worst attacks in the region. The attacks often target security agencies, government officials, and facilities.

The attacks by the gunmen increased in the state shortly after Soludo’s inauguration in March and announcement of an end to the sit-at-home order in the state.

While the Federal Government put the blame on the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), the banned group has repeatedly denied being responsible.

Addressing aspirants of the ruling All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA) for the various elective positions for 2023 at the Governor’s Lodge, Awka, Soludo stated on Monday that the security challenges confronting the state were being “perpetrated by criminals who have now engaged in kidnapping, killing and another manner of criminalities as a lucrative enterprise, a far departure from any form of political agitations”.
