IGWEBUIKE FAMILY FACE ANOTHER ATTACK AS HOUSE BURNT DOWN, TWO CONFIRM DEAD
Not less than ten months after late Jude Igwebuike was murdered, his family’s house in Umunede, Ika North East Local Government Area of Delta State, was on June 10th, 2021 set on fire by gunmen on mask.
The scary incident which claimed the lives of two persons in Igwebuike family, a mother and her daughter, has led other surviving members of Igwebuike family living in the family house to run for their dear lives to unknown destination.
A source from the family neigbourhood who claimed anonymity for safety reasons, said unknown gunmen stormed their neigbourhood at about 7 pm on that fateful day and set Igwebuike family house on fire, stating that as many who saw the masked gunmen numbering over twenty ran for dear lives as they mounted roadblock in front of the family house while waiting for the building to be completely burnt down.
The source further stated that despite distress calls put across to the police, that they arrived at Igwebuike’s family compound an hour after the gunmen had left.
Meanwhile, the fire claimed the lives of Mrs. Marian Igwebuike and her daughter, Flourish Igwebuike. Also, the whereabouts of Mrs. Uche Benedicta Igwebuike nee Agbele and her son, Ronald Igwebuike who was said to be in the family house as at the time the house was burnt has remained a mystery since their burnt bodies were not found.
Another resident who spoke pledging for the name not to be in print disclosed that the continued attack on Igwebuike’s family was because it belongs to the Indigenous People of Biafra, a group that has been a thorn in the flesh of the current government seriously agitating for the sovereign State of Biafra.
