NewsNigeriaHoodlums Sets the Home of APGA National Woman Leader ablaze

Home of the National Woman Leader of the All Progressives Grand Alliance – APGA, Hon. Elizabeth Nkwocha, located at T-Junction, Ndianiche Obinetiti in Arondizuogu, Ideato North local government area of Imo State, has been set ablaze by hoodlums and burnt to the ground. The over thirty years old edifice, a symbol of opulence in the area, with massive compound, and sporting facilities, was destroyed by suspected members of gangs terrorizing parts of Imo and Anambra State, numbering about fifteen and armed, according to an eye witness.

It is still uncertain why the house was an object of the fury of the group, even as such acts of arson have also been recorded in Ihiala local government area, Anambra State, in recent time. In Ihiala, the home of Rt. Hon. Pascal Agbodike, former Deputy Speaker of Anambra State House of Assembly and member of House of Representatives, representing Ihiala federal constituency, was set ablaze and destroyed.

The insecurity in the Southeast under the aegis of agitation has festered and now manifests in various forms. Sometimes, the insecurity manifests as a form of class war, at other times, as some form of extremism, with all manner of criminality. In the end, what you have is a situation where gangs of criminals hide under agitation to carry out nefarious activities.

Reacting to the unfortunate incident, Hon. Elizabeth Nkwocha wondered what might have incurred the wrath of the arsonists against her home in the village. In an exclusive interview with the West African Pilot News, Mrs. Nkwocha said the incident is still a shock to her as she is yet to come to terms that it actually happened. “I don’t have anything to say because it’s still a shock to me and each time I woke up, I wish it never happened,” she lamented.
