IPOB invaded my house in Nnewi, set it ablaze -Joe Igbokwe

The spokesperson of the All Progressives Congress, Lagos State chapter, Joe Igbokwe, has accused members of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra of invading his house in Nnewi, Anambra State, and setting it ablaze.

Mr Igbokwe said security cameras captured the arsonists arriving in a vehicle at his residence in the commercial Anambra town. He said he was doing fine after the attack, but did not clarify whether or not he was at home during the attack.

“IPOB invaded my house in Nnewi about now,” Mr Igbokwe, a top ruling party politician in Lagos, said on Facebook. “I am sure they raised down the my house giving the jerrycans of petrol I saw being offloaded from their Sienna car via CCTV. To God be the glory.”

“I am still alive,” he added. “My study is my greatest regret.”

A police spokesman in Awka, the state capital, did not return a request seeking comments about whether Mr Igbokwe had reported the matter or if the police have identified suspects.

Mr Igbokwe’s disclosure came as reports emerged from Nnewi that headquarters of police and State Security Service in the community were torched by hoodlums chanting destruction of Nigerian flag. Several people were reportedly killed in the attack.
