Joe Igbokwe is a Chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Lagos State. He is popularly known for airing his opinion concerning various issues.
You may recall that Igbokwe's house in Nnewi was recently set ablaze after some unknown arsonists invaded the building. Photos and videos of the fire incident went viral shortly after Igbokwe announced the incident. Igbokwe also released security footage showing how the assailants offloaded jerrycans of petrol used to set the building on fire.
Speaking concerning the attack on his house in Nnewi, Joe Igbokwe said, "The other one is why my house was torched. I have been an advocate of dialogue. I believe that everything can not be achieved through violence. That is why they attacked my house, to gag me. Fortunately, nobody died in the fire, as only material things got affected. I say, if this is the sacrifice I have to pay for things to be okay, then let it be."
