The home of Tonye Princewill, a governorship hopeful on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Rivers, has been reportedly attacked by gunmen.

The attackers were said to have invaded Princewill’s home on Friday morning.

In a statement on Friday, the governorship candidate blamed the attack on his political rivals. 

Princewill said he was the target of the invasion as no item was stolen from the house except the hard drive of the CCTV recorder.


“The target was clearly me, as the intruders headed straight for what they thought was my room, broke in, and met my absence,” the statement reads.

“Nothing of value was taken, except the hard drive of the CCTV recorder, which leads me to conclude, that they had only one objective. My elimination.

“I want to thank God that the devil is a liar and His children will always be protected. Thankfully I am well and nobody in my household was hurt.


“But this is a stark reminder that the 2023 political season has started and those who can not win on the field will seek other ways to attain power. It may have worked in the past, but not here and not now.”

“We are clearly a threat to someone. That person and their group of persons will soon be exposed. In the meantime, I ask for your prayers and your support, and some privacy.

“Any additional detail we have will be released to you via the security agencies. Let them do their jobs. Men from the security agencies are currently on the scene and I have every confidence that justice will be done.”

The development comes days after Princewill declared his intention to run for governor of Rivers.
