Gunmen Set Buildings, Vehicles Ablaze In Anambra

The Daily Crucible |  Monday, May 16, 2022

People suspected to be Unidentified Gunmen (UGM) have set ablaze Idemili North LGA, Headquarters in Ogidi,  Anambra State.

The arsonists also torched a Magistrate court and old PHCN facility in the area.

The incident happened on Sunday night, less than 24 hours after governor Charles Chukwuma Soludo had visited leader of the proscribed Indigenous People  of Biafra (IPOB), Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, in Abuja.

Kanu is being detained within the facility of Nigerian Secret police, DSS, over an alleged treasonable offence.

UGM resumed attack on Sunday night      despite Governor Soludo's meeting with Nnamdi Kanu. Enugu Electricity Distribution Company (EEDC) office in Ogidi, Idemili North Local government in Anambra State was also attacked even as IPOB declared 16th-20th of May as sit at home in Igbo Land.

Soludo, on Sunday, announced his visitation to Kanu, saying it was aimed at finding lasting peace to the issue of insecurity in the beleaguered South East geopolitical zone.

"He (Nnamdi Kanu) expressed sadness over what he described as 'sacrilegious killings' of innocent persons, kidnappings and all forms of criminalities, including the brutal enforcement of the senseless 'sit at home' perpetuated by sundry groups claiming to be acting for or on behalf of IPOB," Soludo said.
