Following the severe beating our cameraman, Chinedu on Wednesday by men who introduced themselves as coming from the Office of the Special Assistant to the Governor of Anambra State on Security, we have reported the matter to the Police at the B-Division Police Station Awka.
The Police in Awka have gladly provided the security cover for us to exercise ur right to cry when beaten. They have accompanied us to the scene of this unpardonable crime from Anambra State Government and APGA at this stage of our political development and we are glad to have enlisted the services of external photographers to get he pictures we must get within our right of fair hearing ,as yet in the Court of public opinion.
As per enclosed photographs, the operatives of Anambra State government and removed the flex bearing the information, even after felling the board, as displayed by us on Tuesday and further shown by Mr Ike Oligbo the sponsor of the billboard (earlier photo also attached)
What is left is the skeleton of the board, even as we have received reports that another bill board of Senator Chris Ngige, standing roughly two kilometres from the Amaku General Hospital victim billboard at the precincts of Transport Company of Anambra State (TRACAS), has equally been destroyed.
While pursuing our case through the due process to get our camera recovered from the Government House in Awka, we appeal to well-meaning Nigerians to advise Governor Peter Obi and APGA sell the programmes and manifestos, if any, of their candidate(s) to the voting public of Anambra State and allow others to do so, rather than trying to stifle the political space in a manner that reminds one of the era of military governance.
We take this opportunity to invite the elders of Anambra State to advise Obi in timing and content of his actions in order not to harm the fragile peace of Anambra State.
