Unknown gunmen yesterday set ablaze the offices of the Directorate of State Service, DSS, and Federal Road Safety Corps, FRSC, in Nnewi, Anambra State, leaving two people dead.
This came as chairman of the South East Governors Forum and governor of Ebonyi State, Dave Umahi, pleaded with his governors to attend a meeting of South East governors, Ohanaeze and other Igbo leaders slated for Enugu tomorrow to plan a way out of the security challenges in the East.
Also set ablaze was the country home of a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Mr Joe Igbokwe, who is based in Lagos.
According to eyewitnesses, the gunmen drove from Owerri Road Nnewi, in four Sports Utility Vehicles, SUVs, and stopped at Eme Court Road Junction, where they released some gunshots, which made passersby scamper for safety.
They were later said to have driven through Nkwo Triangle Roundabout and moved towards Nnobi Road, where their stray bullet reportedly hit a passerby, who was later rushed to a nearby hospital.
