Former APC spokesman in Lagos and Special Adviser to Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, Joe Igbokwe said his house in Enugu State has been burnt by yet to be identified persons.

The Lagos APC stalwart posted a video of the one story building on Facebook with a section of it emitting smoke. 

“Here it is, my house in Enugu has been sacrificed. Thank God there was no loss of lives,” he said on Facebook.

Igbokwe has been outspoken critic of leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu. 

Igbokwe has been a known and vocal critic of Kanu and IPOB and celebrated the rearrest of Kanu by the Nigerian government in June.

According to Vanguard newspaper, Igbokwe said it was because Nnamdi Kanu had placed a fatwa on him and his children. According to him, Nnamdi Kanu asked his boys to behead him anywhere he was found.

In a statement titled, “THANK GOD I SURVIVED NNAMDI KANU’S MADNESS”, Igbokwe said that aside himself and his children, Kanu also included on the kill-on-sight list those who speak against his dream land, Biafra.

“While they were looking for me, I sort the face of God hours on end because I know that to kneel is to win. It was a big battle. Friends were calling me, family members shouted from the roof top that I should lie low. My Children said I was putting them in constant danger. My wife complained and shouted but when she discovered that I cannot change she resorted to seeking the face of God also,” the statement read.
