Protesters take over Enugu state
Angry protesters have blocked roads in Enugu over the commissioning of a road project that is yet to be completed.
According to DailyPost, residents of Eke community, in Udi Local Government Area of Enugu State, expressed their displeasure over the incident by protesting.
DAILY POST reports that the road, which is an ecological fund project under the office of the Secretary to the Federal Government, is yet to commence, but a Federal Government delegation is said to be in the area to commission the project.
The over N400m project- Enugu-Eke-Ogui Uno-Eke Eke-Obodo Amankwo-Oma Eke road, is yet to be constructed.
Members of the community displayed placards with inscriptions such as “Corruption Unlimited; ICPC where are you; EFCC where are you; Fraud Unlimited; Public Procurement Act Crucified,” among others.
They described the development as a monumental fraud which would be resisted.
