Panic has enveloped Ohaji/Egbema local government area of Imo state after the palace of the traditional ruler of the Etekwuru community was razed. The attackers burnt down the monarch's property including his Highlander Jeep on Thursday night, barely 24 hours after youths and soldiers clashed in the community.  The incident happened after enraged military men burnt some houses in the agrarian community over the killing of a soldier.
 
However on Thursday night, the attackers stormed the king’s palace with explosives and when they could not find the monarch or any member of his family, they set his house and properties which included his official vehicle on fire.
 
The traditional ruler who was taking refuge at the Divisional Police Headquarters located at Mmahu, told the publication that he and his wife escaped death by whiskers. He said he was rescued by police operatives and left his palace half-naked. The monarch noted that he had lost a lot to the attack. He wrote;

“At 10.30 pm of Thursday 21/10/21 hoodlums came into my compound, broke my window glasses, pour fuel into my rooms, and set my house on fire. “They were shooting sporadically and I couldn’t find a way of escape with my wife and child. I started making calls to the police for help but the help could not come until the building burnt beyond control. My 4runner Jeep burnt to ashes.

“The police came around 11.45 pm but could not get the arsonists. I learnt it was those boys responsible for the killing of the soldier whose houses were set on fire by the Army on reprisal that are responsible for the arson.

“I left my house with only boxers as all properties in my house burnt. As the police arrived, I came out from my hidden point and discovered that the next building to my house is also on fire. “I am calling for help from any good-spirited person to enable me to survive the shock, as I am now in the police station.”

UNKNOWN gunmen indeed. Who doesn't know that the unknown gunmen are the Northern bandits/terrorists killing and burning down houses in the North. Sponsored and backed by the ruling APC have now been exported to the South. They are also the people you call federal government security officials of northern extraction. Idiots that don't value life. Animals.

so you really believe that hausa people left the north to kill and burn down houses in the east abi? Don't deceive yourself bro, the same way the hausas are responsible for the killings and destruction in the north, so are the igbos responsible for the killing and destruction in the east. Our people say the worm that destroys the kolanut lives within the kolanut.
