The Indigenous People of Biafra has been accused of being responsible for the Sunday’s twin attacks on the All Progressives Congress (APC) and All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) governorship campaigners in Anambra State.


Joe Igbokwe, an aide to governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos state made the accusation on his Facebook page.


This comes after gunmen went on rampage in two locations in Anambra State, killing four persons and injuring several people at an APC rally.


The hoodlums also set ablaze a car belonging to a leader of Prof. Chukwuma Soludo Campaign team, Dr Nelson Omenugha.


While the attack on the APC took place during the party’s rally at Uruagu, Nnewi, the attack on Omenugha occurred at Nnobi in the Idemili South Local Government Area of the state.


Dr. Nelson Omenugha, son of a serving commissioner in the state, escaped unhurt during the attack. The gunmen, however, set his Hilux vehicle ablaze.


APGA was also targeted.


According to an eyewitness, the APGA Chairman in Uruagu-Nnewi Ward 1, Chukwuemeka Benjamin Nwokebuagu; a schoolteacher; and an executive member of the APC in Uruagu-Nnewi Ward 3 in Nnewi North Council, Ofomata Somadina all lost their lives.


The eyewitness said the gunmen attacked Nwokebuagu’s vehicle and the four persons in his company at Afor-Nnobi, Idemili-South Council on Sunday night.
