The All Progressives Grand (APGA) has condemned the recent attack on Prof. Charles Chukwuma Soludo – a leading governorship aspirant of the party.
A statement released by the National Publicity Secretary, Mr Tex Okechukwu on April 1, in Abuja said the attack was cowardly, dastardly, callous, unwarranted and premeditated.
It wondered why any right-thinking person or persons should ever contemplate such a fruitless and unnecessary action against an innocent man, who had contributed immensely to National development.
The party said it was pained and disappointment that the security and peace the people of Anambra State had been enjoying under Gov. Willie Obiano were gradually being compromised by some disgruntled and nonsensical elements “whose ultimate goal is to return Anambra State to the years of violence and brigandage’’.
APGA called on the security agencies to act swiftly and unmask all those involved in this callous and ignominious act by bringing them to book with promptness.
It condoled with the leadership of the Nigeria Police over the loss of three of its gallant officers cut down in the unwarranted attack, praying to God to grant their souls peace in heaven.
The party called on Ndu Anambra to band together at this critical period in defence of their state against incursions by anti-social elements bent on causing disharmony and insecurity.
