Imo businessman asks CP to burn down his residence
A businessman, Okikajekwu Onunaku, has petitioned Imo State Police Commissioner Muhammed Berde regarding the razing of his country house.
Onunaku, in a petition to CP a copy of which was obtained by our correspondent in Owerri on Saturday, called on the police chief to bring the suspects to justice.
Onunaku said some people burned down his country house in Oru area of Imo state on July 30.
He therefore called on the CP to bring the arsonists to justice.
The petition read: “I, Prince Okikajekwu Teddy Onunaku, on July 30, 2022, being Saturday around ten o’clock in the evening (10 p.m.), I heard the sound of a gun, which my wife and I believed to be the security guards of Ms. Tina Onunaku, my older brother’s wife, are shooting as usual, because her security guards are still shooting every night.
“In the morning, on my way out to reach our St. Peter Extension Primary School in Ndiuhu, I saw a blue bus from Siena with masked armed men with guns.
“They called me to come and answer them. I turned around and ran away and they immediately followed me thinking I was going home. When they arrived at my house, they met my wife and pointed a gun at her asking where I was.
“She told them I wasn’t there. They entered my house and searched all the rooms and they did not see me.
“According to my wife, after ten minutes they left. They came back with a Mr. Collins EZENWA ILO and searched and ransacked the entire complex with unknown gunmen, all masked except for Mr. Collins EZENWA ILO.
“The following Monday morning, I learned that my house had been burned down by a telephone call. Collins EZENWA ILO came with police officers and arrested two of my brothers namely: Benjamin Onunaku and Sylvanus Onunaku.
“I actually ran away when I saw these men who called me because I observed that the same blue bus from Siena they had come with had the same description as my wife told me that the same unknown gunmen came to my house two months ago at 11 p.m. to look for me.
“Again, the same unknown armed men picked me up with the same blue bus from my place of work (beach) where I am digging gravel. when I saw them coming towards me, I had to run because of the level of insecurity in the country in general, and even in our LGA.
State police spokesman Micheal Abattam said the command was investigating the incident.
