Calm appears on the return to the Anambra Community of Houston, Texas. This is following recent information gathered by 247ureports.com over the activities of the principal Anambra State Union and its former operators in the persons of Chris Ulasi and Vincent “sabi” Nweke – which indicates that the last curtain may have fallen on the trouble brewing within the State Union in Houston amongst its members.
As reported previously in an August 20, 2011 publication titled Houston: Town Union Fraud, Ulasi, Nweke fingered [documents included], the failed attempts by the founding Chairman of the Anambra State Union, Vincent “Sabi” Nweke and the former Chairman of the Union, Chris Ulasi to cover up the questionable financial mismanagement and possble identity theft-showed the two former chairman deceptively registered an alternate organization unbeknowst to the members of their organization- and monies raised by the Union under the official name of ANASCO made itsway into another account opened by Vincent Nweke under the name of the alternate organization. Vincent Nweke, when confronted at the tail end of his tenure as the chairman, pleaded innocence stating that it was a mistake. But Chris Ulasi, who took over the chairmanship from Nweke, was not as apologetic as Nweke when he was contronted by the members – who were demanding for an audit following the Anambra State Association in the United States of Anambra [ASA-USA] convention hosted in Houstion 2005.
Some of the stakeholders of the Houstion Anambra Union, after having made numerous failed efforts to have the Chris Ulasi led Executive to perform an audit of the accounts of the State Union -and to update the Union’s accounting system to reflect the approipriate name of the Union, they decided to take actions outside the dictates of the State Union and of Chris Ulasi. Prior to opting to take actions, the group of stakeholders observed that the Chris Ulasi led executive was actively drawing down on the money saved in the bank belonging to the Union. And to avert the continued drawdown, the group approached the Bank officials with the appropriate documents. This enabled for the monies in the account to be moved toan account with the correct name.
Caught off gaurd, the Chris Ulasi /Vincent Nweke group took immediate legal option and file a suit against the stakeholders of the Union on November 19, 2010 in the District Civil Court at the 295 Judicial District, Harris County, Texas under Cause number 2010-76740. The suit was filed by Patrick O. Chukelu, Esq. The suit charged the stakeholders of fraud [identity theft – that they group stole the identity of the Union] and prayed for the courts to grant a restraining order for the group to stop using the name of the Union.

On December 7, 2010, the Chris Ulasi/Vincent Nweke group, through their prayer for a temporary restraining order, asked the courts for the refund / release the monies rescued by the stakeholders in the amount $10,000, they asked for the stakeholders to refrain from having physical contact or presence at 13403 Renn Road, Houston, Texas 77083 [location where the Ulasi/Nweke group holds its functions], theyasked for the stakeholders to refrain using the name of the Union. But the presiding Judge refused to grant them the first and third wish. The Judge granted Ulasi/Nweke team the second request but with a preset condition. He asked the stakeholders to refrain from having physical contact or presence at 13403 Renn Road, Houston, Texas 77083 [location where the Ulasi/Nweke group holds its functions] “during Ulasi/Nweke monthly scheduled meeting in their room”.
Another date was set to hear the remainder of the case.
Meanwhile, the National body of Anambra Unions in the USA [ASA-USA] has thrown its weight into the trouble in Houston. The National body, as 247ureports.com gathered, has examined the case in Houston among the two groups and discovered that the stakeholders were authentic in their quest to resolve the annomaly in the Anambra Union in Houston. To this, the National body issued a letter of recognizing the Stakeholders as a body it recognizes as the Houston chapter.
