It was a melodrama as Commissioner for Internal Security in Ebonyi state, Prince Etta Uka Udeh ordered for the arrest and beating of some Journalists for calling him on phone over missing motorcycle of staff of the Government House, Abakaliki

It’s recalled that unknown hoodlums invaded old Ebonyi Government House, Abakaliki and carted away motorcycle of a staff of Internal Security.

The Commissioner who faulted Journalists numbering over ten for calling his attention to the disappearance of the bike described the incident as unwarranted and a no-business to his office.

Consequently, Prince Udeh who stormed the midst of the Journalists(Government Correspondents) with some thugs told them that it’s not his fault that the motorcycle went missing, hence, ordered for the arrest of all the Journalists on duty.
