A gang of armed men Thursday morning targeted Nnewi South Local Government Area in Anambra State.

Anambra State Police Command says “It is a suspected case of arson”.

DSP Tochukwu Ikenga told reporters that the information “is still sketchy”.

The spokesman added that more operatives had been deployed to the area and Fire Service was contacted.

The burning is suspected to have been carried out by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).

In January, gunmen stormed a burial ceremony in Ezinifitte, Nnewi South LGA. The attack left some people dead.
