Uwajumogugate: Imo Assembly Ex-Speaker Fumbles At Force CID Abuja
In a strategic bid to further dig into the root cause of various allegations of murder, fraud and other corrupt practices leveled against the Ex-speaker of Imo State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Benjamin Uwajumogu by his former aide and socio–political crusader Citizen Ikenna Samuelson Iwuoha, the authorities at the Force Criminal Investigation Department (FCID), Force Headquarters Abuja invited the Former Speaker who is the Chief suspect in the allegations, and the activist who is the complainant and petitioner. Other suspects invited to the Force CID are Emeka Ahaneku and Kodichi Anamekwe.
They were invited to appear before the Head Commissioner in-charge of Force CID Abuja on the 14th of January 2016 for interview.
On the said date being Thursday, the Former Speaker and his aides met Citizen Ikenna Samuelson Iwuoha eyeball to eyeball. Shortly after, they were led into the office of the Head Commissioner FCID by Supol Faraday Amaechi, who is the Senior Officer investigating Uwajumogu’s corrupt practices and murder allegations.
To say that Citizen Samuelson gave a good account of himself and his petition is an understatement. The activist gave detailed and blow by blow account of how Uwajumogu and his aides looted and stole Imo State Government blind through Road contract scams, Ghost Workers Scams, Financial Assistance Scams, etc. Citizen Samuelson also boldly informed authorities at FCID that Uwajumogu should be held responsible for the brutal murders of his aides as follows (1) Mr. Emmanuel Adoba (2) Mr. Kingsley Nkemka (3) Mr. Chidi Eke (4) Corporal Chinedu and the attempted assassination of Activist Ikenna Samuelson on the 3rd of June 2014, which later resulted to the brutal murder of one Architect Franklin Okolie.
Not done, the Social Crusader informed the ‘’Oga Kpata-Kpata” at Force CID that his petition on political killings and kidnappings in Imo State dated 26th June 2015 had received the attention of the Inspector General of Police, who in turn directed the FCID to conduct thorough investigations. As a result, Senior Police Officers from FCID stormed Imo State in December 2015 and conducted investigations.
Ex-Speaker Uwajumogu fumbled when he was asked to Speak. Rather than talk on the allegations of murder and fraud against him and his aides, he chose to go pedestrian. He was frustratingly talking on how he gave the activist political appointment, and how he loved Citizen Samuelson Iwuoha. Ex-Speaker Uwajumogu however admitted that many of his aides were murdered on different occasions but claimed that he was not responsible for their deaths. On the brutal murder of Architect Franklin on the 3rd of June 2014, Rt. Hon Benjamin Uwajumogu denied responsibility for the murder. At this point, Citizen Samuelson stood up and interrupted Uwajumogu and pointedly asked the Commissioner FCID that if the Ex-Speaker was not responsible for the murder of Architect Franklin Okoli, why did he (Uwajumogu) connive with the then Commissioner of Police in Imo State (Mr. Abdulmajid Ali) to subvert justice, by refusing to arrest the five boys who murdered Architect Franklin Okolie and whose names and addresses were submitted at a Security meeting held at Imo State Government House on the 5th of June 2014? Citizen Samuelson further asked what the Ex-Speaker’s Chief Security Officer, Mr. Omeudo was doing in the office of his IPO (Mr. Innocent Obi) on the 5th of June 2014?
Finally, Citizen Samuelson asked why the Ex-Speaker connived with the powers that be in the state to frustrate the transfer of the case in July 2014 to FCID Abuja when Senior Police Officers stormed Owerri to effect the transfer? At this juncture, Ex-Speaker Uwajumogu, as a humiliated and frustrated He-goat exclaimed before everybody inside the office of the Commissioner in-charge of FCID, “SAMUELSON, GI NA EMEM IHEA? You have dragged me to EFCC, ICPC and now FCID. You just want to frustrate my Senatorial election coming up soon. My political opponents are using you to fight me. Leave me alone.” Out of frustration, Ex-Speaker Benjamin Uwajumogu also confessed that Citizen Samuelson Iwuoha has used his powerful and huge media network to destroy him politically and his business interests, pleading that the Socio-Political Crusader be compelled to stop writing about him. Hear Uwajumogu again, “My friends and associates now avoid me. Some of my friends have deleted my telephone numbers from their lines. They see me as a bad person. Sir, before we get to Imo State, what transpired today in this office would be made public by Citizen Samuelson. He does not spare anybody”. He became famous and legendary when he fought former Governor Ikedi Ohakim to a standstill, and Ohakim flogged him” unquote.
Supol Faraday Amaechi and his team will storm Imo State in few days time to conclude their investigation as ordered by the Commissioner in charge of FCID, Force Headquarters’.
Citizen Samuelson has vowed to fight to the very end, in order to get justice. A new set of petition is being prepared for the new EFCC boss, while another petition is for the Code of Conduct Bureau (CCB). Any moment from now, the Imo State Police Command and Ex-Speaker Uwajumogu would be dragged to court for their various Crimes against the Socio-Political Crusader, Citizen Ikenna Samuelson Iwuoha.
