Unkmown gunmen have attacked Prof. Charles Soludo, former governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) who has indicated interest in the November governorship election in Anambra State.
The Union Nigeria reports that he was attacked in Isuofia community in Aguata Local Government Area of Anambra State.
Three policemen among the security aides attached to Soludo were shot dead in the attack.
DSP Ikenga Tochukwu, Police Public Relations Officer in Anambra State, confirmed the attack but did not go into details.
This is the latest in the campaign of violence on security agents in the Southern part of the country.
Earlier in March, gunmen invaded a bus conveying some suspects to court in Anambra and killed a prison warder and other person.
The tragic incident happened in Aguata Local Government Area.
On Sunday, Frank Mba, Force Public Relations Officer, announced that some members of the Independent People of Biafra (IPOB) and Eastern Security Network (ESN) were arrested over the murder of security operatives.
No group has claimed responsibility for the attack on Soludo.
