By Samuel Akpan 

Gunmen, on Thursday, reportedly set ablaze the home of Ford Ozumba, commissioner for labour, employment and productivity in Imo state.

The attack was said to have occurred in the commissioner’s hometown in Umuhu-Okabia community, Orsu LGA of the state.

The attackers reportedly threw petrol bombs into the compound.

Confirming the incident on Friday, Ford said the attack recorded no casualty as there was nobody in the house at the time of the incident.

“We were all in Owerri only to learn this morning that my family house had been burnt down,” he said.

“I was told that the attackers wreaked the havoc in the dead of the night. They threw petrol bombs into the compound.

“What a sad day. My family compound in my village has been razed down by hoodlums last night.”
