Nigerians, particularly southeasterners have refused to condemn the attack on the residence of Joe Igbokwe, the Special Adviser on Drainage and Water Resources to the Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo- Olu.
Igbokwe in a Facebook post on Sunday decried the attack as he noted that some parts of the building and vehicles were burnt by IPOB.
Joe Igbokwe said, ” Here it is. My Home in Nnewi has been sacrificed. No life was lost. To God be the glory.
” IPOB invaded my house in Nnewi about now. I am sure they raised down the my house giving the jerrycans of petrol I saw being offloaded from their Sienna car via CCTV. To God be the glory. I am still alive. ”
Shockingly, many Nigerians believed to be residents of the South- East region blasted the special adviser instead of sympathizing with him following the attack on his residence.
A Facebook user noted that prior to now, Joe Igbokwe has been a staunch critic of IPOB and its activities, and it is understandable why everyone is against him even now that he is in pains.
Nigerians Ridicule Joe Igbokwe Amid Attack On His Residence
@Henry Njokwu said, ” Chai! What a loss. This man should have kept quite like others all these while. To me, he brought this unto himself through his alterances. May we learn to quite quite in a situation we have no capacity to control. ”
@David Dayo said, ” There is nothing like unknown gunmen, we know exactly who is responsible. . . stop this your evil journalism Sahara Reporters before it’ s too late. This is IPOB at work and it’ s a confirmation that they are a Terrorists group. My message to the terrorist is that. . no matter who you kill, no matter what you do to your brothers in the name of Biafra. . you will wake up every morning for the rest of your lives only to realize that Nigeria can never be divided. . . That’ s your prison. ”
@Kola oyekan said, ‘ ‘ Special Adviser on Drainage and Water Resources’ ? What is the relevance of this appointment? There is a Commissioner of Environment, Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Environment, Special Adviser on Environment. There is Lagos State Environmental Protection Agency (LASEPA) etc. Why wasting public fund on a needless advice? I am sure he too will have about 2 or 3 staff attached to his office. Sheer waste of public fund. ”
@Bella Chiyene said, ” Mr Joe Igbo ekwegi must realize that IPOB is peaceful and does not burn the houses of innocent citizens, especially one like him. These unknown gunmen must be checked as soon as possible. ”
@Richmond Umiamoh said, ” We urge joe igbokwe to become law abiding citizen of anambra and go about his normal business. There is no cause of the alarm. We the citizens are on top of the matter and we assure him the the perpetuators will be brought to book when ever he repent. ”
