UNKNOWN gunmen were reported to have set ablaze the country home of Nnaemeka Obiaraeri, the Imo assembly Labour Party candidate representing Okigwe LGA.
According to reports, the unknown gunmen, in the early hours of Saturday 4th, stormed the country home of the aspirant in Amagu Ihube with three Toyota Hilux vehicles.
Obiaraeri, in a statement, said the gunmen burnt his cars and houses belonging to his father and uncle to ashes:
“Just got another share of the terrible state of security in Nigeria.
“Unknown gunmen came to my country home in Amagu Ihube, and burnt to ashes the operational factory vehicles including my house.
“They also destroyed my father’s house and that of my uncle. My aged mum and siblings are currently in trauma.
“The insecurity in our state has gotten to its precipice. I don’t know who I offended and why anybody could target me for destruction. I have not eaten anyone’s yam or fish.
“This again reinforces our call for Nigerians to pick their PVCs and help vote for Peter Obi and Ahmed Datti of the Labour Party, the next President and the next Vice President of the country.
“APC government has failed us woefully especially in terms of protecting lives and property.”
