Joe Igbokwe, a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has accused the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) of setting his house on fire in Nnewi, Anambra state.

The special adviser to Babajide Sanwo-Olu, Lagos state governor, on drainage and water resources, says the members of the separatist group invaded his house on Sunday.

In a couple of posts on his Facebook page, the politician said no life was lost in the incident.

He said the closed-circuit television (CCTV) in his house captured the activities of the invaders.

Igbokwe wrote: “IPOB invaded my house in Nnewi about now. I am sure they (razed) down my house, (given) the jerrycans of petrol I saw being offloaded from their Sienna car via CCTV. To God be the glory. I am still alive.”

The APC chieftain also shared a video from the aftermath of the attack, with an accompanying caption that reads: “Here it is. My Home in Nnewi has been sacrificed. No life was lost. To God be the glory.”

Hours after he published the video, he deleted it from his Facebook page as well as the initial post.
