Charles Soludo, the State Governor of Anambra, Nigeria, on Sunday, September 18, disclosed the identity of the gunmen terrorising areas of the state, stating all of those captured so far are Ìgbò people.

While speaking in an interview, Soludo stated, “Let me be apparent about it; 100 percent of the individuals we have captured are Igbos. It is not about some individuals invading from somewhere; it is 100 percent Igbos on Igbos, that is the truth.”

He said that the first set of people that they captured were 100 percent Igbos from other south-east states, and none was from Anambra.

But as they went on, they found that a whole lot of the youths who have been taken to these bushes who got brainwashed and fell into these kinds of things also happen to be citizens of Anambra state or indigenes of Anambra.

Soludo further added that the security situation in Anambra is largely improved since he came to power as the governor, attributing the feat to the efforts of the security forces.

He also stated, “Giving where the situation was when we came; we are not saying that Anambra is 100 percent secured, but everyone in Anambra, the 8.5 million residents of Anambra, can attest to you that insecurity in Anambra has come down to the barest minimum.”

There were fifteen camps that were run by gunmen in Anambra, which have been destroyed.

Even on Saturday, September 17, some other places where the gunmen were gathering have been decimated. The government has degraded their infrastructure, and they now don’t have the capacity again to come with the kind of ferocity they had during the past.
