Anambra State Governor, Chukwuma Soludo while expressing deep condolences to the bereaved families and organizations, particularly the US Embassy, over the death of their staff and policemen who were attacked by gunmen along Atani-Osamala Road, Ogbaru Local Government Area of the State, on Tuesday, has said that his government and the security agencies in the state were not aware of the staff mission in the state.

The governor said the visiting team made their own security arrangements and totally bypassed the existing security architecture in the state and the state government was not aware of the “humanitarian mission” of the visiting team.

Soludo, who expressed his condolences in a statement signed and made available to Journalists in Awka, on Wednesday, by his Chief Press Secretary, Christian Aburime, said that the State Government with the security agencies will smoke out the criminals and bring them to justice.

“In a place like parts of Ogbaru where security forces have been fighting the criminals and oil bunkerers, the sight of few policemen can indeed attract vengeance from the criminal gangs. Correcting such lapses and ensuring better coordination will help prevent such avoidable incidents in the future.

“The Government of Anambra State once again, expresses its deepest condolences to the families and loved ones of the victims. We reassure the United States Embassy in Nigeria of our unwavering commitment to the safety and security of its officials in our State.

“Together, we will prevail over those who seek to disrupt the peace and stability of our society.”
