A community leader from Igboeze North LGA of Enugu state,  Chief Harrison Ogara, has thrown more light on the petition filed against Senator Ayogu Eze, whose name has been submitted by the All Progressive Congress, APC, as it’s guber candidate for Enugu state.

Ogara told newsmen that the petition sent to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC,  was in line with the community efforts to unravel the mystery surrounding the abandoned Umuida/Ogrute/Unadu/Akpanya/Odoru Road contract Number 6170.

He said the people of the area are worried about the Road contract which cuts across five communities awarded to PW Nig ltd worth N13 billion.

The fund for the contract is believed to have been embezzled.

Already the EFCC has visited the road for on-the-spot inspection and assessment of the road.

Ogara said; “The case is not fresh, the matter is in court. But the angle in court is where the community is claiming damages against the Company, PW Nigeria Ltd for destroying their Eco system, their environment, water reticulation, among others.

“As a community we don’t have powers to investigate abandoned property so what we did is to file a petition to the EFCC to investigate because we found out that the road was among the projects the Goodluck Jonathan government claimed to have completed.

“So we want to find out what happened to the N12.8 billion paid for the project. PW claimed they received about N6 bn. What happened to the balance; who cornered it? Also, the job done by PW is nowhere near what they claimed to have received.”
