The palace of HRH Eze Obi Ralph Ekezie, the traditional ruler of Obor Autonomous Community, a neighboring community to Omuma, Gov Hope Uzodinma’s hometown in Orlu Local Government Area of Imo State, has been set ablaze by unknown persons around 4pm on Thursday.

An eyewitness said the arson caused some damages to the monarchs’ property and two other buildings around his community.

He also said the fire was later put out by the combined efforts of good-spirited individuals in the community.

The monarch, who spoke to DAILY POST on phone, confirmed the incident but blamed those he called enemies of progress in his community for the burning of his palace.

The monarch further said he was monitoring the development from his abode in Owerri, capital of Imo State.

He expressed sadness, saying the level of damage can’t be ascertained now but when he gets home tomorrow.

When contacted, the Imo State police spokesman, Michael Abattam, said the command was not aware of such incident.
