Residents of Eke community, in Udi Local Government Area of Enugu State, have taken to the streets in their numbers, protesting the commissioning of a road project yet to be completed in the area.
The Eastern Updates reports that the road, which is an ecological fund project under the office of the Secretary to the Federal Government, is yet to commence, but a Federal Government delegation is said to be in the area to commission the project.
The over ₦400m project- Enugu-Eke-Ogui Uno-Eke Eke-Obodo Amankwo-Oma Eke road, is yet to be constructed.
Members of the community displayed placards with inscriptions such as “Corruption Unlimited; ICPC where are you; EFCC where are you; Fraud Unlimited; Public Procurement Act Crucified,’ among others.
They described the development as a monumental fraud which would be resisted.
