The immediate past governor of Imo State, Chief Ikedi Ohakim narrowly escaped death when his Owerri residence was Thursday Bombed by unknown persons.

According to the former governor who wept as he saw the ruins to which his house was reduced, he got a call from some security details in the area at about 1:30am informing him of the tragic incident.

Ohakim alleged that some roofs were opened from outside the lobby before the suspected hoodlums threw in the bomb.

“This is the only building I have in this state, I built it in 1992 when I was a commissioner, now I have to knock at people’s door to have a place to sleep,” he added.

However, Ohakim expressed gratitude to God that there was no loss of lives in the unfortunate incident. He said he arrived Owerri in the evening of the incident from abroad where he went for medical checkup and wanted to sleep in the house, but later decided to proceed to his country home in Okohia in Isiala Mbano local government to pass the night.
