Breaking : Gunmen burn Imo lawmaker’s house

by OkeomaNews

A group of gunmen have razed the country home of the lawmaker representing Orlu Local Government Area at the Imo state House of Assembly, Paschal Okolie.

Okeomanews gathered that Okolie’s country home at Umudura, Akwakuma Okporo community was invaded around 1am on Sunday and was razed.

A source told our correspondent that the lawmaker’s library, documents and properties were burnt as the arsonists struck.

The lawmaker who on Tuesday confirmed the arson, called on security agents to bring the perpetrators to book.

He said “on Sunday the 12th day of February, 2023, at about 1am, arsonists invaded my residence at Umudura, Akwakuma, Okporo in Orlu Local Government Area and set it ablaze. All my house hold items, my library, documents and invaluable artifacts were lost to the inferno. I am still thankful to God that no life was lost.

“I have consistently condemned without mincing words, these acts of aggression, destruction and associated killings which have sadly become trademarks in our dear state.

” The burning of my house without provocation is another challenge to the security agencies to rise to the occasion and bring the perpetrators to account. I have no doubt that they are not relenting but more is expected of them so that our people will begin to have peace to mind.”

When contacted, the spokesperson for the police in the state, Henry Okoye, said that he had yet to be briefed on the incident.
