Some unknown gunmen have attacked the home of the spokesperson of Isseke youth at Ubaha-Isseke, Ihiala Local Government Area of Anambra State.

The rampaging attacker razed the home of the late Mr. Oliver Okafoeze.

Investigations revealed that the deployment of security operatives to Ubaha-Isseke in an attempt to curtail the activities of unknown gunmen in the community led to the attack.

According to Okafoeze’s daughter, Onyinye,  the assailants targeted his father’s residence and left behind “a trail of devastation and anguish.”

Recounting the ordeal, Onyinye said, “On the 4th of January 2024, The tranquillity of the night was shattered by the gunmen who shot sporadically at anything in sight. The situation forced people to run for safety.

“The home of Mr Oliver Okafoeze was burnt with an assassination attempt on his wife and children. Miraculously, their absence spared them from the clutches of this nefarious assault.”

She also informed that the palace of HRH Igwe Emmanuel Nnabuife, the Igwe of Isseke, suffered a similar fate on the ill-fated day.

“The very heart of our community along with the homes of countless residents was devoured by the merciless gunmen. In its wake, it left behind a trail of destruction, reducing properties and vehicles worth millions of Naira to ashes.

“Such is the gravity of the plight of Late Mr. Okafoeze’s wife and children that they find themselves trembling under the weight of death threats,” Onyinye lamented.
