Yet to be identified gunmen have attacked the country home of Imo State Governor, Hope Uzodinma.

The newspaper reports that vehicles parked at the compound and a section of the palatial building were burnt by the hoodlums.

Declan Emelumba, the State’s Commissioner for Information and Strategy, confirmed the incident, saying: “It is true, but the information is not still clear.”

“It’s not true that several security men lost their lives. About two security men on duty at the governor’s house were killed. NSCDC personnel were among the security men who lost their lives during the attack,” he said.
