Suspected political thugs have razed the residence of the All Progressives Congress National Assembly candidate for Ikwerre/Emuoha Federal Constituency, Ezemonye Ezekiel-Amadi, in Omerelu, Rivers State.

The incident happened on Saturday in Omerelu, his country home, in the Ikwerre Local Government Area of the state.

As the fire started, some community youths were said to have intercepted one of the assailants and arrested him.

In a video he personally shared on the incident, Ekekiel-Amadi said most of the rooms were burnt, adding that the assailants broke the glass and set fire through the curtains.

In the video, all the louvers glass in the apartment were destroyed, while chairs, tables, ceilings and electronics were burnt.

He stated that one of the assailants, who was caught, told him how he broke the louvers glass and set fire from the curtains.

The candidate said, “This is my aunty’s room; this is the ceiling, the air conditioner. But for the intervention of my relatives and community youths… the curtains, mirrors are all burnt.”

The spokesman for the party in the state, Darlington Nwauju, said the incident was masterminded by suspected arsonists.

He said, “We want to warn that these attacks must stop because our party members cannot be expected to be on the receiving end at every election circle.

“It is clear that security agents are not able to cover the state and are not able to mop up all criminal elements and hired thugs acting as predators.

“We commend the youth of Omerelu community for their intervention and arresting the arsonist who perpetrated this dastardly act.”

The spokesperson for the state police command, Grace Iringe-Koko, said she would find out about the incident and give our reporter feedback.

Iringe-Koko, a Superintendent of Police, had yet to do so as of the time of filing this report.
