Published

on

There was chaos at Udensi Roundabout , few poles to Ebonyi State Government House, Abakaliki , on Thursday when policemen and armed soldiers clashed over alleged violation of traffic rule by the latter.

The fracas started when some police traffic wardens impounded a tricycle , whose operator violated traffic light signals .

An eyewitness , who would not want to be mentioned , explained that when efforts to secure the tricycle failed , the operator contacted the owner who was a soldier .

He narrated that some minutes later , the soldier arrived with another tricycle and asked after the traffic police wardens who impounded his tricycle .

This resulted in a fierce fight as the wardens allegedly engaged the soldiers, prompting a detachment of soldiers on guard at the International Conference Centre , Abakaliki , to rush to the scene and joined the fray .

While the matter was being settled inside ICC , a detachment of mobile policemen and operatives of anti -robbery squad arrived the scene and charged at the soldiers.

The soldiers, however , responded by cocking their rifles, while also making calls for reinforcement from their base .

It took the intervention of senior police officers from the Ebonyi State Police Headquarters , Abakaliki, to calm the situation and avoid what would have been a major security scare and bloodshed as reinforcement from an army base arrived the scene minutes later .

When contacted, the Public Relations Officer of the Command , Mrs Loveth Odah , said it was an internal matter that should have been settled by the appropriate authorities .

She said the matter ended with no casualty .

WuzupNigeria gathered that the incident happened at their place of residence on Johnson Street, Alaba area of Lagos State.

Chisom was said to have left the drink in the house and stepped out to attend to an issue, but when he returned, he discovered that Henry had taken advantage of his absence to consume the drink.

Angered by his brother’s action, Chisom was said to have grabbed a knife and stabbed Henry in the neck.

“Chisom stabbed his younger brother, Henry, to death because of a bottle of soft drink. He is currently in our custody. Investigation is ongoing.”

Dubai-based Nigerian boy, Ray Hushpuppi has slammed President Muhammadu Buhari for seeking approval for a fresh loan of $5.513 billion, and also the House of Representatives member that will approve the loan.

In a letter read by Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, at the plenary on Thursday, the president said the loan was to finance the 2020 budget deficit, financing of critical projects, and supporting some states of the federation.

Hushpuppi has now reacted blasting those involved. He wrote;

This time I’m not even going to blame or focus my strength or time on dumb Buhari, this time it’s to all the Reps and senators who will approve this loan again after a recent one was just approved and we don’t know where it went. Any of you reps and senators that will vote for this loan to be approved should know it will not be well with you and your generations, as you all plan to help the future nigerian kids in poverty before even being born, your own children will suffer before your eyes. Bastard people wey e no go better for all of una together
