Suspected IPOB/ESN Members Set Ablaze Monarch's House

Some group of criminal gangs suspected to be members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) on Sunday set ablaze the residence of the traditional ruler of the Ndia Iche Arondizuogu community in the Ideato North Local Government Area (LGA) of Imo State, Eze Kanu Ikenolu.

According to reports gathered by VerseNews, the suspected IPOB members stormed the home of the monarch in the early hours of Sunday, shot sporadically before torching the building.

It was gathered that Eze Kanu Ikenolu narrowly escaped before the criminal gangs arrived.

The destruction of properties at the monarch’s residence was aided with explosives

According to The Nation, the compound which houses the traditional ruler’s home and his palace was filtered by the debris of the destroyed building.

A villager who did not want to be named for security reasons said that properties worth millions were destroyed by the hoodlums.

He decried the police’s inability to intervene on time as they were told that the hoodlums were attacking the monarch’s home.

The villager said: ”The palace of HRH Eze Ikenolu, the Eze of Ndia iche Arondizuogu has been invaded by the gunmen and the people are in the bushes now.”

He wondered why “Until now no response from the police to stop the hoodlums from further destruction of the palace of HRH Eze Kanu in Ndianiche Arondizuogu, where cars, houses and properties worth millions of naira were destroyed. Anytime Arondizuogu is under siege the police hardly come to the people’s rescue, it makes us also wonder if the place is no longer part of Imo State.”

Imo Police spokesman Henry Okoye, who confirmed the arson to newsmen, said: “Frantic efforts are on top gear to arrest the arsonists and bring them to justice.”
