The President of Abia State Ohanaeze Ndigbo Mr Rowland Ajuzieogu has been accused of obtaining by false pretence from the Abia state Government the sum of five million Naira.
He was alleged to have deceived the Abia state Government that Igbo Day 2017 would hold whereas the event did not hold after all and he failed to return the money to Abia state government or intimate his members about the money.
The Abia state Government is said to be furious about the sad situation while members of Ohanaeze Ndigbo in Abia state is now threatening show down over the event.
He was said to have taken 3.5million naira and gave his cronies 1.5 million naira to maintain sealed lip. The scandal was blown open when one of those who went with him to the solidarity visit on Dr Uche Ogah, an APC gubernatorial aspirant blew the whistle open.
The members also allege high handedness , autocracy and misappropriation of more than twenty million naira from various sources from the said Ajuziogu.
They called on him to resign immediately to avoid his sack by the Abia state EXCO.
Efforts to get Ajuzieogu’s side of the allegation has so far proved abortive.
