Awka, April 2, 2021 (MOI) Youths Earnestly Seek Soludo (YESS), a foremost Youth Socio-political Organisation advocating for the candidacy of Prof. Chukwuma Soludo in Nov. 6 Anambra Governorship elections, has condemned attack on their principal.
The incident happened at Isuofia Civic Centre, where Soludo was holding an interactive session with youths of the area.
The attack by unknown gunmen at the meeting resulted in the unfortunate death of his security operatives and the abduction of a serving Commissioner.
Mr Emeka Ezenwanne, Commissioner for Public Utilities was abducted by unknown gunmen.
A statement released, by the National Coordinator of YESS, Dr Nelson Omenugha, called for a thorough investigation into the acts it described as an assassination attempt on the life of the erudite professor and one of Anambra illustrious sons.
It called for useful information and support to the Government that would lead to the timely release of Mr Ezenwanne, the abducted commissioner kidnapped by the criminal elements at the meeting venue.
“Members of YESS Anambra condole with the families of the slain security men, praying to God to grant their souls eternal rest. “We called on our teeming members and Ndi Anambra to remain calm, prayerful, resilient and more vigilant, going forward,’’ the statement added. (MOI)
