0

Unknown gunmen stormed the country home of Ekene Nnodumele, the member of the Imo State House of Assembly representing Orsu State Constituency, in Ebenato, Awo Idemili, on Wednesday, 16th of June 2021, beheading a gateman on duty and setting the house on fire. 

The attackers also razed the home of the state’s former Attorney-General and Commissioner for Justice, Cyprain Charles Akaolisa, in the village, according to SaharaReporters.

Imo state has recently been subjected to a slew of attacks, particularly against security forces.

Armed men stormed the Imo State Police Command and the Nigerian Correctional Service headquarters in Owerri on April 5, 2021, setting fire to the buildings and releasing nearly 1,800 convicts. 

Unfortunately, a stray bullet struck one person suspected of being an escaping prison inmate.

The residence of the state governor, Hope Uzodinma, was also set ablaze by the rampaging gunmen.

They set fire to part of the structure and torched some vehicles on the property during the attack, killing at least one security official.

The police authorities have accused the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) of sponsoring the recent attacks in Imo and other South East States. The group has denied the allegations. 

President Muhammadu Buhari has also directed security agents to restore peace in the region by dealing with the insurgents’ promoters.

A joint operation by the Army and the police is ongoing in the region to end the incessant killings of policemen and the destruction of public buildings.
