The family of a blind man, Anibueze Nnadi, whose building was allegedly demolished by Aku Village traditional ruler, Christopher Okwor, has appealed to Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi to provide him with accommodation.

Aku is located in Igboetiti local government area of Enugu.

Addressing journalists in Enugu on Sunday, Uchenna Ezemagu thanked Mr Ugwuanyi for his timely intervention when their brother’s house was demolished in September.

“We are so concerned about his fate during this rainy season. So we are appealing to the governor to give him somewhere to stay. Therefore, we the Ozor Awoke Agana family of Umuezike Aku, on behalf of Nnadi, the blind man, whose house was demolished are happy with how his excellency handled the matter when he heard of it,” said Mr Ezemagu.

He added, “Since he set up a panel of inquiry and suspended the traditional ruler, there is a bit of calmness and peace in the vicinity as no one is running again. Ever since then, we have not done anything because he asked us to wait but as our father, we are waiting for him to tell us the next line of action.”

According to him, the victim is the only surviving member of his family and has no wife and children.

He added that the matter was reported to the police but nothing was done until it was reported to the inspector general of police.

Mr Ezemagu further said they had yet to receive the report of the panel set up by the governor but appealed to him to do something urgent to alleviate Mr Nnadi’s plight.
