Phone tracking results in arrest of Charles Soludo’s attacker

New facts that have just emerged indicated that one of the suspected attackers of the former governor of Central Bank of Nigeria and governorship aspirant of All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA, Charles Soludo, was arrested after his phone was tracked by security operatives.

The Police Command of Anambra State had earlier stated in a press release that one person, whose name it failed to release, has been arrested for his alleged involvement in the crime. 

A source at the state police command’s headquarters, who spoke to the press on condition of anonymity, said one of the suspects lost his phone during the attack, and was picked by police operatives, who used it to track him down.

“One of the killers forgot his phone at the scene of the attack, and we found it when the CP visited the place. We tracked down the owner and arrested him, and he is helping us with investigation.

“As at the time the CP arrived at the scene of the attack, the men were still moving, one of them was even muttering something, but we could not hear him. They were certified dead at the hospital,” the source said.

Meanwhile, it has been gathered that police officers and men in Anambra State police command have been barred from wearing their uniforms to work to reduce the risk of attacks on them.

The source said: “It is a directive from the hierarchy of the command. Police officers now carry their uniforms in bags to the office, before changing into them.”
