The scandal got to alarming rate when some former appointees of the governor were not only implicated in the fraud but also had to spend days on the dungeon of security operatives while explaining what they know about the reported payment and shoddy allocation of lands.

News had it that two former Commissioners that were in the employ of Uzodimma were incarcerated to give more highlights to the land racketeering fraud.

Impartial Observers also learnt that apart from the Commissioners involved, there were other government officials from the state legislature to the executive implicated in the entire stinking deal.
