Gunmen bomb home of Ohanaeze Ndigbo president in Imo


Several gunmen on Saturday morning bombed the home of the president-general of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Prof George Obiozor, at Awo-Omanma in Oru East Local Government Area of Imo State.

Sources told Vanguard that the gunmen drove into the compound at 6:15 am and opened fire for over 15 minutes before blowing up the house.

It was learnt that Obiozor was not at home when his house was attacked.

Obiozor’s brother’s houses were also reportedly attacked.

“The roof of the buildings were blown off and scattered around the compound. Those living in the compound are now in fear that the unknown gunmen will likely come to cause more damage,” a source told the newspaper.

Imo police spokesperson Micheal Abattam said he had not received any report of loss of lives in the incident.

The attack on Obiozor’s home came hours after Umuguma Divisional Police headquarters in Owerri West LGA was burnt with two policemen killed.
