Tragedi! Trader Narrates How Ebonyi Commissioner, Pst. Nwachukwu Burnt her Goods, Money Amidst Brutality
By Our Correspondent
State Commissioner for Market Development, Pastor Nwachukwu has been accused of brutalizing a trader, Ifeoma Alu, and equally burning her goods and money to ashes.
Speaking with our correspondent, Miss Alu said her inability to rent a shop-made her set up her business in her street called Unuofia.
According to her, the Commissioner and her boys came on 21st January 2022 and ordered the boys to flog her mercilessly and equally burn her goods.
“While they were flogging me, others were busy burning my goods. Anybody that tried to video what was going on, they will destroy the person’s phone”.
“The reason I set up this business is that my father and brother recently died. I decided to open this business to be feeding my old mother.”
“Now the Commissioner whom I later discovered that he is the Commissioner for Market Development, Pastor Nwachukwu has destroyed my only source of feeding my family”, she said.
An eyewitness that craved anonymity who narrated what happened to our Reporter also backed the trader’s accusation against the Commissioner.
According to our source,
“This lady in the video was confronted by the Commissioner for Market Development, Abakaliki, Ebonyi State, who sells Okirika in an open space off Saint Margaret International Market beat the lady up merciless and burnt all her goods together with her money she wanted to order for goods the very day this incident happened. The lady was left with bruises and wounds the Commissioner inflicted on her.”
As at the time of filing this report, efforts by Famousreporters.com to get the reaction of the state government proved abortive as calls placed to know the contact of the commissioner were not answered nor returned.
