The palace of Eze Kanu Ikenolu, a traditional ruler at Ndia Iche Arondizuogu community in the Ideato North Local Government Area of Imo State was set ablaze by unknown gunmen.

Speaking about the incident, sources told the Whistler that the gunmen stormed the palace of the traditional ruler with explosives which they threw into the compound which resulted in a fire outbreak that torched the building, properties and cars in the compound.

A community source said that properties worth millions were destroyed and blamed the police for not responding to the distress calls from the community.

The villager said, “The palace of HRH Eze Ikenolu, the Eze of Ndia iche Arondizuogu has been invaded by the Unknown Gunmen and the people are in the bushes now.

“Until now no response from the police about the palace of HRH Eze Kanu in Ndianiche Arondizuogu, where cars, houses, and properties worth millions of naira were destroyed. Or is Arondizuogu no longer part of Imo State?”

The spokesperson of Imo State Police, Henry Okoye said that “frantic investigating efforts are on top gear to arrest the arsonists and bring them to justice”
