The world of a heartbroken lady who is said to be the breadwinner of her family has been turned upside down, after her shop reportedly got demolished by the Anambra State government.
According to online sources, the lady who rolled on the ground while crying and cursing the state governor after her shop was demolished by Anambra State Government task force in Nnewi, said she prefers death than being alive after her only means of livelihood was destroyed.
Facebook user King Promxy Jonathan who shared photos of the lady who drank to stupor following the incident, wrote;
“AFTER GOV WILLIE OBIANO demolished her shop at Nnewi and this woman were crying and rolling cursing Willie obiano that God will see her family feel the same humiliation she face and that peace will never be in gov Willie obiano family and when I try to ask her some questions , the lady was crying bitterly and I couldn’t hold my tears seen her hard earn shop demolished .
Gov willie please try and reach out to this lady because heaven will remember this lady tears on that faithful day and remember they never voted for you to cause pain rather you were voted to govern well. Chidimma Tonia who is governor aide should see wat his principle did to this lady. She is the bread winner of her family and now this family has lost a big tin. After power judgement follows. My heart is still in deep pain .”
There was also cries and wailing at the popular Nnamdi Azikiwe University (UNIZIK) Temporary site in Awka, the state capital in the early hours of Thursday as the Anambra state government also demolished shops in the area.
It was gathered that more than 70 shops/stalls along St. Joseph Workers Catholic Church, Oby Okoli Avenue/ Okpuno Road, TRACAS Park/ Pedestrian Bridge and others with the exception of a cooking gas store which was probably spared to avoid explosion, were demolished.
The campaign against illegal structures had started at Onitsha and environs some weeks ago, with the state government claiming to have informed people around Awka and other parts of the state to stop selling on roads or building illegal structures.
