“Today my wife’s health is in serious danger as a result of this action of government. I have tried repeatedly and consistently to see you or the governor on this issue but to no avail.

“I have been a friend to this government and have defended it when it matters most. Why is government punishing me? Why this wickedness being metted on me and my family?

“Why do government want to kill my wife? Anambra state government house and lodge should not be built with the blood of my wife”

Daily Vendor gathered that state government demolished the building, claiming it was within the area it is currently constructing the State Government House/Governor’s Lodge, near the Alex Ekwueme Square, Awka .

The area will serve as the state’s Three Arms Zone, so named as it is expected to contain headquarters of the three Arms of Government – Judiciary Complex, State House of Assembly (Legisture) and the Government House/Governor’s Lodge (Executive)
