A 65-year-old visually impaired man begs Ugwuanyi to accommodate him

A visually impaired man, Anibueze Nnadi, whose building was demolished in September 2021, has again called on Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu State to come to his aid. Mr. Nnadi’s house, which was still under construction, was allegedly demolished by Christopher Okwor, the traditional ruler of the Ihekwuenu-Aku autonomous community in the Igboetiti local government areas of the state. The Nigerian News Agency (NAN) learned that Mr. Okwor claimed to own the land where a philanthropist, Okechukwu Ezemagu, was building the two-bedroom apartment for Mr. Nnadi. The building was nearly finished when it was torn down by hired thugs. The Enugu state government immediately intervened and announced the suspension of the traditional ruler. The government action came on the heels of protests by angry youth in the community against the demolition. When the NAN correspondent visited Mr. Nnadi on Monday in Aku village, he was seen crouching on a part of the demolished structure. “I will continue to appeal to the governor to come rescue me,” the 65-year-old said. “I have no choice, so I have continued to be here, but it hurts more every time it rains.” Nnadi, who expressed sadness at the demolition, thanked Governor Ugwuanyi for his intervention. “But I am still begging you to find me accommodation to ease my sufferings, especially in this rainy season. “I always get upset when it threatens to rain because I don’t have a better place to shelter. “I will continue to ask the Governor and other well-meaning citizens of Enugu State for help. “I want the world to know that my neighbor left me homeless, simply because I am blind. “I have the firm conviction that the governor will come to my aid because he is a good man. “I am also looking to God for justice. With God, no one will take my ancestral land from me,” said Nnadi.
