Why Unknown Gunmen Are Focused on Anambra State – Gov Soludo

Charles Soludo, the Governor of Anambra State, has revealed the identity of the unknown gunmen responsible for the state’s violence.

The mystery gunmen orchestrating assaults in the state, according to the former Central Bank Governor, are Igbo.

On Wednesday, Soludo, who issued a curfew in seven LGAs throughout the state, decried the violence in the state.

He stated that the curfew will be enforced until calm was restored.

Soludo said, “Let us be very clear. These criminals causing mayhem in Anambra, albeit of disparate groups and gangs, are Igbos (dominantly from other South-East states) whose real objective is lucrative criminality and foisting their idolatrous religion on the region

“Unfortunately, every criminal gang (including cult groups) claims to be a “liberation movement”, making it difficult to differentiate between any genuine agitators from criminals. Unfortunately, also, criminals now dominate the space.”

Soludo said the gunmen are targeting Anambra State because it is the most lucrative location for kidnapping for ransom in the South East.

He lamented that the so-called gunmen claim to be fighting for their people and yet they randomly kill the same people, destroying their livelihood, and stopping their children from going to school.

The Anambra State Governor further stated, “What has agitation got to do with kidnappings including the kidnapping of priests of God, invasion of churches and tabernacles including desecration of the Alters of God? Why is it that everywhere they gather and in every camp they operate, there is a Deity/idol to which they routinely offer blood in sacrifice?

“From accounts of those kidnapped and later freed the stench of dead bodies in the camps to cry up to heaven. We see videos of them and their idol worship; we note their threats to priests and bishops, including threatening to take over some churches.

“The people of the South East, especially Anambra, are predominantly Christians. But with this gang, idolatry is back with vengeance. They forcefully try to convert people, especially the young ones to idolatry by initiating them into cults, swearing oaths to their Deities, with the promise of invincibility. Consequently, these youths join them as members and informants.

“Desecration of our culture: Spilling of the blood of the innocent is considered an abomination by our culture and by our Christian religion. We understand that they kill and harvest human organs for rituals and human sacrifice in their so-called camps.

“With their new religion of idolatry and deadly weapons which they use to kill at random, they have tried to create a culture of fear and silence. More recently, the people have begun to question their propaganda, motive and means and they know that they have lost the sympathy of the people. That explains why they desperately tried to ignite a national inter-ethnic crisis by killing some innocent northerners who have lived peacefully in our state for decades to divert attention from their criminality and then seek to re-brand themselves as “defenders of the people”.

According to Soludo, they have failed, and would continue to fail.”
