Police confirms attack on home of ex-Rivers lawmaker

23 September 2016, 16:03

Rivers - The Rivers Police Command has confirmed arsonists’ attack on the house of Dr Chidi Lloyd, a former leader in Rivers House of Assembly.

The building is located at Akpabu in Emohua Local Government area of Rivers State.

The spokesman for the command, Mr Nnamdi Omoni, a DSP, told newsmen in Port Harcourt on Friday that the police had received information on the attack.

He said details of the incident were still sketchy, but the police were still working hard to get more details on the incident.

Lloyd had told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Port Harcourt on Wednesday that his house had been burnt.

“From the information I gathered, unknown gunmen, numbering about 20 in military uniform, came on motor bikes and went straight to my house in the village and set it ablaze.

“It is a new building that I just finished. Everything inside the house was burnt down, but no life was lost,” he said.

Lloyd said he had no problem with anybody and wondered why people would contrive to carry out arson against him.

“I do not think that I have any previous problem with anybody. The only problem I have on earth is politics,” he said.
