Recalls that gunmen had opened fire during a town hall meeting at the Isuofia community in Aguata Local Government Area of Anambra State, killing three of his security aides.

But Soludo, who spoke on Thursday during an interview on Channels Television’s Politics Today narrated how gunmen attacked him.

Charles Soludo said, “When it was all over, it took several minutes, 10 or 15 minutes of continuous gun battles going back and forth of stopping, starting again.’’

“By the time we all came back, we saw three bodies lying in the pool of their blood. They were the three policemen. May God grant their soul eternal rest.

“At first I thought, maybe the policemen were shooting in the air. Until I began to hear people screaming and all of that and everybody just scampered for safety.

“Just as I was about to wrap up the town hall meeting and said finally for them now to open up for comments and answers, there were gunshots.”

While commiserating with the families of the slain officers, Soludo promised to support them.

He described the attack as senseless, noting that no political office should be worth the blood of a chicken, how much human life.

The ex-CBN governor, a member of the ruling All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), is one of the frontline aspirants for the November 6 governorship election.
