Imo lawmaker?s country home razed down by gunmen

Some gunmen have reportedly attacked the country home of the lawmaker representing Orlu state constituency at the Imo State House of Assembly, Paschal Okolie. 

Confirming the attack on Tuesday, February 14, Okolie said his country home at Umudura Akwakuma in Okporo community was invaded around 1am on Sunday morning and burnt down. 

He told newsmen that his library, documents, household items and artefacts got burnt during the attack. Okolie said; 

?On Sunday, February 12, 2023, at about 1am, arsonists invaded my residence at Umudura, Akwakuma, Okporo in Orlu Local Government Area and set it ablaze. All my household items, my library, documents and invaluable artefacts were lost in the inferno. I am still thankful to God that no life was lost.

?I have consistently condemned without mincing words, these acts of aggression, destruction and associated killings which have sadly become trademarks in our dear state.

?The burning of my house without provocation is another challenge to the security agencies to rise to the occasion and bring the perpetrators to account. I have no doubt that they are not relenting but more is expected of them so that our people will begin to have peace of mind.?
