The country home of the People’s Democratic Party candidate for the state House of Assembly, Ifeanyi Ozoemena, was on Tuesday, March 7, set ablaze in Okigwe Local Government Area of Imo State.


The gunmen also burnt down another house belonging to Ozoemena’s father during the attack carried out around 2pm. They reportedly operated unchallenged. 


Ozoemena confirmed the development. He said; 


“My house and that of my father at Umuokparaoha village in Umulolo community in the Okigwe Local Government Area of Imo State were razed on Tuesday.

They struck around 2pm, set the houses on fire and supervised the burning. The two houses and the properties got destroyed in the attack. They operated unchallenged. I am distraught. This is unfortunate.

“I call on the Commissioner of Police to intervene. I am grateful that no life was lost. My aged parents were not around when they struck.”
