At first, I thought it one of those thugs around OCDA office. It when the other person who flanked by two policemen instructed to reverse the vehicle, introducing himself as the contractor of the Port-Harcourt Road project, that I realized that they were renovating the road and I obeyed even when I didn’t know their reason for ordering back. It was later discovered that the said contractor is actually Senator Hope Uzodinma’ brother, Mr Uche Uzodinma. While I tried to park, the same began to deride me, describing our vehicle as rickety, threatening to mercilessly if we wait any .”

Mr Uche Uzodinma entered his black Hilux Toyota Hilux and zoomed off with his convoy loaded with stern-looking men. I could not move any . I fell down,” he narrated.
