The Imo state All progressive Congress, Coalition group spokesperson, Hon Theodore Ekechi, on Wednesday escaped being hurt by unknown hoodlums, who gained entrance into his house and made away with items worth 45 million naira.
Reports gathered showed that his Owerri residence located at Umuguma Housing Estate, Owerri west Local Government Area of the state, was vandalised and ransacked by the unknown men, as they made away with four (4) gold wrist watches, 20 HP laptops, archive official documents, jewelries, among other things.
Narrating the ordeal to newsmen, Ekechi, said that such incident has never occurred before in his neighborhood, according to him ” This has never happened since 2011 when I started living in this neighborhood, we have never had any incident of burglary”. He asserted
And he continued, “I’m been worried about the timing of this, considering the fact that I have been vocal about the happenings in Imo state politically, as it concerns who becomes the governor of the state come 2019.
I’m also worried that when I receive calls and messages of commendation or solidarity, it has always ended by warning me to be careful about my life and also beef up my security”. The APC Allied Forces Spokesman affirmed
Theodore Ekechi, however said that the awful incident will not intimidate or discourage him in speaking out against the happenings in Imo state.
Meanwhile the Police Public Relations Officer, Andrew Enwerem, when contacted said that the police is investigating a case of burglary around the housing estate axis.
