Unknown gunmen were on rampage again in Imo State on Saturday as they set ablaze the country home of a former Nigerian Ambassador to the United States and President General of the Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Prof George Obiozor.
The attackers were said to have arrived at the country home located at Awo-Omanma in the Oru East Local Government Area of Imo State.
They were said to have used explosive devices at the house. It was also learnt that Obiozor was not at home when his house was attacked.
A source said, “The country home of Prof George Obiozor was burnt. The CCTV cameras captured the attack. Thank God Prof was not at home when they came.”Obiozor had yet to respond to an inquiry concerning the attack but one of the leaders of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, who prefers anonymity, said that he had called Obiozor to commiserate with him on the incident.
He called on the police to fish out those who carried out this arson. The police spokesperson in the state, Michael Abattam, had yet to respond to an inquiry concerning the attack on Obiozor’s country home.
The attack on Obiozor’s country home came the same night the Umuguma Divisional Police Headquarters in the Owerri West LGA of the state was burnt with two police constabularies killed and cars burnt.
