The town of Ezinato in Awka South Local Government Area of Anambra State was on Wednesday thrown into mourning as a man reportedly killed his brother, Sebastian.
It was gathered that the man, Chinwendu Okeke, was celebrating his victory in court over a protracted land dispute, with his car, when he allegedly crushed his brother, Sebastian.
According to eye witness account, Chinwendu, a bus driver was oscillating in his vehicle in wild jubilation in demonstration of his excitement when he mistakenly ran over his brother.
Mrs Agnes Uche, who spoke to journalists, said: “Chinwendu drove furiously around the village and while he was driving past his compound, his brother; Sebastian came out to caution him over his speed but he drove past by.
“I think he latter saw his brother through the rear mirror and reversed to hear what he was saying, but by then, his brother had already turned and was moving into the compound, when Chinwendu drove back and hit him.”
On his part, a brother to the deceased, Thompson Okeke, said that Sebastian was rushed to Regina Caeli Hospital, but was referred to Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu University Teaching Hospital where he was confirmed dead.
He added: “We regret what happened. It was our elder brother that ran over him while he was celebrating the victory our village recently secured in court in a protracted land issue we had with our neighbors, Umuanyom village.”
It was learnt that the Court of Appeal judgment favoured Ntoko Ezinato village against Umuayom Ezinato village and the judgment subsequently threw the beneficiaries into jubilation when the news filtered in.
While some indigenes of the community were said to have taken to drinking to celebrate the victory, others simply ran around the village in joy.
The police in the state however could not confirm the incident as of the time of filing the story as the State Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), SP Haruna Mohammed, could not be reached as at the time of filing this report.
[MUST READ] Wait! Before You Vote Atiku —- Musa Mohammed
The big question on our mind should be can we trust Atiku? What really is the new thing he is coming to offer bearing in mind he was once the number two citizen of this great nation for 8years? If we insist the position of a vice president is not as powerful as the president, haven’t the achievements of Prof. Yemi Osinbajo knocked out such narrative?
The Nigerian vice president has proven times without number that he is as useful as the president of Nigeria and records are there to show for it. Where are the achievements of Mr. Atiku?
If you ask Nigerians, most of what they would remember about his days in office would be the national assets he sold to his colleagues and the long running battle he had with his principal, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo.
Aside from the fact that there should be no vacancy in Aso Rock, Osinbajo is more presidential than Atiku. Don’t take my words for it, below were some of the things his then boss said and wrote about him chronologically.
2003 “I regret picking Atiku Abubakar as my vice”.
2004 “I can no longer work with Atiku, his integrity is in question “.
2005 “Atiku cannot be trusted “.
2006 “Atiku cannot escape justice over corruption cases “
2007 “Do not vote Atiku he is corrupt”.
2008 “Atiku is a corrupt leader”.
2009 “Nigerians can never forgive Atiku”.
2010 “Atiku is not an option to leadership in Nigeria “.
2011 “I have never seen a leader as greedy as Atiku “.
2012 “Nigerians should pray for leaders imbued with integrity not Atiku “.
2013 “Atiku should apologize to Nigerians over his political sins”.
2014 No political party with the aspiration to assume leadership should think of Atiku”.
2015 “Nigeria has grown beyond a corrupt leader like Atiku”.
2016 “I will never reconcile with Atiku “.
2017 “I never knew Atiku was this corrupt ” “I can never be on the same page with Atiku. God forbid!”.
2018 January to August “God will not forgive me if I support Atiku “.
2018 August “Atiku has the capacity to save Nigeria’s economy from collapse”.
If such verdicts could come from Obasanjo who was his direct boss, what doubts should Nigerians have in rejecting such bad market and move on to the next level with the present administration bearing mind that Obasanjo once said, “As an engineer, I know a point I can use tractor to hit and a storey building would come down within few minutes, but it would take years to erect such.”
Nigeria is undergoing transformation. The administration of president Mohammodu Buhari has used his first term to lay a good foundation for him to start building on in 2019 and it only make sense to key in.
God bless Nigeria.
