Following up on our report on the activities of a certain Emma Edo, who has allegedly hijacked the collection of livestock revenue in Imo State, from the Governor Hope Uzodinma contracted agent, Ugologu Works and Services, MaaziTV investigative correspondent today 25th of March, 2021, visited the Ihube Junction post where the revenue is collected at Okigwe.
Emma Edo’s boys were in operation, with shielding from men of the Nigerian police. The agent of Ugologu Works and Services presented their letter, authorizing them from the Imo State Government to commence work, but the policeman in charge, after taking the letter, called Emma Edo’s boys, who in the presence of the policemen, attacked agents from Ugologu Works and Services.
According to the policeman in charge, they were posted their on orders.
Our correspondent tried to ascertain who gave the orders, but no answer was forthcoming, making us wonder if the orders to allow Emma Edo obstruct the instructions of the Gov Hope Uzodinma led Government, was coming solely from the Area Commander, or was the Commissioner of Police, also involved in the matter?
For a state in great need for revenue, Emma Edo, in possible collusion with officers of the Nigeria Police, are hemorrhaging Imo of revenue through their activities, and urgent action is needed to address the matter.
