Gunmen Attack Country Home Of Imo Assembly LP Candidate

Gunmen have attacked the country home of Dr Nnaemeka Obiaraeri in Okigwe Local Government Area of Imo State.

The attack on the home of the Labour candidate for Imo House State of Assembly took place on Saturday morning, according to a statement by Obiaraeri.

He said his house, cars, and those of his father and uncles were burnt and destroyed by the gunmen, who were said to have stormed his house in three vehicles.

The LP candidate blamed the attack on the “failure of the All Progressives Congress-led administrations in the state and at the centre.”

“Just got another share of the terrible state of insecurity in Nigeria.” Obiaraeri said.

The statement read, “Gunmen, surely known to their sponsors, went to my country home in Amagu Ihube to burn down my house and burn to ashes my operational factory vehicles parked there.

“They also destroyed my father’s house and that of my uncle…My aged mum and siblings are in Trauma!!!

“Three Hilux trucks loaded with bandits and killers, went on a spree of burning houses and maiming people without anyone stopping them.

“I don’t know who I offended and why anyone will target me for destruction. I have not eaten anyone’s yam or fish.

“This is another evidence of the failure of the APC Governments in Imo State and Aso Rock, Nigeria to live up to their OATH OF OFFICE of protecting the lives and properties of law-abiding Nigerians. Total failure of governments and leaders.

“This again reinforces our call for Nigerians to pick their PVCs and help vote in Peter Obi and Datti Baba Ahmed of the Labour Party as the Next PRESIDENT and VICE PRESIDENT of Nigeria.”

Recall that last December, Hon. Christopher Eleghu, a candidate for the Labour Party’s State House of Assembly in Imo state’s Onuimo LGA, was killed by gunmen in his home.

His house and cars were also set ablaze.
