Joe Igbokwe, an All Progressives Congress (APC) chieftain, has revealed the cause for the current attack on his house in Anambra State.
Igbokwe stated that the burning of his house was part of his penance for speaking out against violence in the Southeast.
He also revealed that his house was set on fire in an attempt to silence him.
Unknown gunmen set fire to Igbokwe’s house in Nnewi, Anambra State.
The APC Stewart, who is located in Lagos State, said that the action was carried out by the Indigenous People of Biafra, or IPOB.
However, Igbokwe believes that conversation, rather than violence, is the best approach to achieve results in the Southeast.
“On why my house was destroyed, I have been an advocate of dialogue, it’s not everything one achieves by violence,” Igbokwe told Channels Tv on Sunday in Lagos.
“That’s why they assaulted my house, to gag me; no one killed, only property was destroyed.”
“And I replied, if that’s the price I’m willing to pay for everything to be okay, then so be it.”
