Unknown gunmen in the early hours of Saturday attacked the country home of Nnaemeka Obiaraeri, the Okigwe Local Government Area of Imo State House of Assembly candidate of the Labour Party (LP).
Gunmen Attack Imo Assembly LP’s Candidate Home
Reports say his house, cars, and those of his father and uncles were burnt and destroyed by the gunmen said to have stormed the place in three vehicles.
The attack was confirmed by Obiaraeri in a statement he personally issued on Saturday morning.
The LP candidate blamed the attack on the “failure of the All Progressives Congress-led administrations in the state and at the centre.”
Obiaraeri lamented in the statement that he, “Just got another share of the terrible state of insecurity in Nigeria.”
His 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.”
In other news, Kanyi Daily reported that Nigerian rapper, songwriter, and actor, Folarin Falana, popularly known as Falz, has vowed never to vote for candidates he referred to as “same people that have plunged us into this unending chaos.”
