According to the Holy Bible, “when unusual things begin to happen in a usual manner, then the rapture is set to take place”.
To me, the time I saw millions scatter on the road was years ago when an ex-Commissioner under a Former Governor was hit by an oncoming vehicle at the eve of a general election around Assumpta Avenue, and he died instantly while leaving millions littered all over the place.
Recently, a Hilux van belonging to Imo State Government and attached to the office of the Chief of Staff, Uche Nwosu was conspicuously sighted along Warehouse junction and loaded with over #200 million initially meant for the payment of pensioners for the months of January, February and March miraculously jumped out from a Hilux Van after every plans were concluded to secretly divert same to personal use.
A traffic Warder who identified one of the police officers used in diverting the money, disclosed that the money was originally meant for the payment of pensioners, but Uche Nwosu and his father-in-law on hearing that President Buhari has withdrawn his support for tenure elongation, they turned back to use same money for political settlement.
According to him, Uche Nwosu had directed the driver to convey the money to the official residence of the Speaker, Imo State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Acho Ihim for sharing among lawmakers that endorsed him recently.
Continuing, he maintained that immediately Uche Nwosu was contacted over the ugly development, he ordered them to return the money back to Willow Wood Hotel, along Orlu Road, a hotel owned by the Chief of Staff.
The traffic warder who expressed bitterness that they have been owned for three months by Imo State Government, wondered why a family could continue to hold the state to ransom.
He said, “My friend who followed in that Hilux to convey the money to the Speaker told me that Uche Nwosu directed them to do so. He said that the money was initially tipped for the payment of part of pensioners arrears, but after the endorsement by Lawmakers and the latest development in Abuja, Uche Nwosu and his father-in-law changed the original plan for another one best known to them”.
