Coming on the recent statement which he had put out on some of the investments which had been made by former Anambra State Governor Peter Obi, Governor Charles Soludo of Anambra State has openly raised the alarm that his family members are being harassed over his comment on Peter Obi’s investment in the state.
It can also be recalled that the former Central Bank Governor had, during an interview, declared that the investment the Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi, claimed he made with Anambra State revenues was “next to nothing”.
And in lieu of this, there had been series of backlashes from supporters of Obi, particularly on social media following Soludo’s comment.
In an article which he had published on his Facebook page on Monday, the Anambra governor had also alleged that some persons angered by his comment have launched attacks on him and his family.
According to him, “sadly, several of the comments left the issue of the interview to probe or suggest motives, inferred from my response on “investment” that I am opposed to Peter Obi’s ambition and therefore committed a “crime” for which the punishment is internecine abuse and harassment even to my family.
“Some people even suggest that the gunmen who went to attack a checkpoint at my hometown on Saturday 12th November but were gunned down was part of the mob reaction.
“I used to think that for decent people, certain conducts are off-limits, and that in Anambra, politics is not warfare”.
According to him, there were suggestions that the recent attack on security persons at Isuofia community of Aguata Local Government Area of the state where he hails from, were carried out by those provoked by his comment.
