The country home of a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, Joe Igbokwe, was allegedly set on fire in Nnewi, Anambra State, on Sunday.
Mr Igbokwe, in a Facebook post, accused members of the proscribed Indigenous People Of Biafra (IPOB) for the incident.
“IPOB invaded my house in Nnewi about now. I am sure they raised (sic) down my house giving the jerrycans of petrol being offloaded from their sienna via CCTV. To God be the glory I am still alive,” Mr Igbokwe posted on Sunday afternoon.
The APC chieftain did not however provide any evidence on the involvement of IPOB in the alleged arson.
In recent times, unidentified gunmen have targeted known personalities in the southeast, including Chike Akunyili, a medical doctor and husband of the late NAFDAC boss, Dora Akunyili.
Most of the attacks have been blamed on the members of IPOB, whose leader, Nnamdi Kanu, is in detention over charges of treason.
The leadership of the separatist group has, however, distanced its members from the dastardly attacks.
