Anambra State governor, Prof Chukwuma Soludo

A policeman has reportedly been shot dead in Isuofia Community in Aguata Local Government Area of Anambra state.

Isuofia is the community of Governor Charles Soludo.

According to a source in the community, the gunmen stormed the junction where security operatives were stationed and opened fire.

The source said the gunmen were possibly angered by the idea of stationing a security post in the area.

“The hoodlums stormed the area, shooting non-stop, while residents scampered for safety. One policeman was killed in the process,” the source said.

The spokesman of the Anambra State Police command, DSP Ikenga Tochukwu, confirmed the attack but said no policeman killed.

The police spokesman also said the incident did not happen in the community but along the express.

He, however, said three police were wounded in the process and the operation was still ongoing.

He also said a vehicle was recovered with bloodstained showing that the hoodlum suffered casualty.

But the community sources insisted that the attack happened at Isuofia and a policeman was killed.
