Whistle-blowing: Anambra council boss beats up worker

The Chairman of Anambra East Local Government Area, Pius Ifeadi, has allegedly beaten up the Head of Local Government Administration of the area, Mr. Chike Obuekwe, for raising the alarm over diversion of the council’s funds.

It was gathered that Obuekwe was beaten up after he wrote a memo to the council chairman to draw his attention to what he called massive corruption and diversion of funds in the council.

Ifeadi, known as governor Willie Obiano’s political son, did not take the revelation lightly.

“He invited Obuekwe to his office and attacked him physically, using his shoes and other instruments available, leaving him wounded, particularly in his head,” a source in the  LGA told SUNDAY PUNCH.
