Mystery fire razes monarch’s palace in Imo community

 

A mystery fire has razed the Palace of traditional ruler of Oboro Amurie kingdom in Isu Local Government Area of Imo State Eze VO Ahamefule Duruoha 1, to the ground.

Although the monarch and his children were rescued unhurt, the inferno destroyed the palace.

Spokesman of the palace, Ezinwa N’Isu, Chief Sixtus Nnamdi Nsorom, however, debunked reports that the fire was caused by gunmen, urging the public to disregard unfounded rumours linking gunmen to the fire outbreak.

His words;

“The entire public is hereby urged to disregard such unfounded rumours linking unknown gunmen as Eze Ahamefule of Oboro Amurie Kingdom has no problems with anybody by whatsoever nomenclature.

“The desecration of the sacred kingdom of peace of Uzunakpuigwe remains condemnable and an abomination of the highest order.

“While we thank God Almighty that no life was lost, we will continue to dig deep to unravel the root cause of the unfortunate incident. Eze Duruoha remains a universal king loved by all and sundry.

“Hence, the rumour of unknown gunmen is hereby jettisoned as it is untrue, fake and should be seen as null and void.”

Spokesman of the Imo Police command, Michael Abattam also confirmed the incident saying an investigation is ongoing to unravel the cause of the fire outbreak.

He said;

“We don’t know the cause of the fire, we are still investigating.”
