Thugs sponsored by the embattled Executive Chairman of Abak LGA Akwa Ibom state Barr. Imo Williams attacked one Mr Sandy Wisdom in the late hour of 9:pm, along hospital road, Abak LGA.
The young man whose car was equally damaged during the deadly attack luckily escaped death in the hands of these thugs.
Mr Wisdom who had earlier been threatened by the Executive Chairman through a letter demanding his attention before the Afahaobong youth Congress, could not help but raised alarm and protested on the social media against violence and damages done to him and his car by the Chairman’s hired killers.
He narrated that he was on his way returning home when he noticed some hectic young men following him, he branched to a street that leads to his house, immediately stopped the car and escaped. Being that they could not get to him, they ended up damaging his vehicle.
Another person who contacted NEWSIE EVENTS correspondent in Akwa Ibom confirmed that similar case of violence had occurred on Saturday last week when Someone who supported Mr Uwem Obot to fight for the collection of his money from the Debtor Barr Imo Williams was attacked by some thugs who are currently working for the Chairman of the council.
The attack was said to be a retaliation of an attack on the Chairman to pay the furniture maker Mr. Uwem Assian.
NEWSIE EVENTS correspondent reliably gathered that the council helmsman has unleashed his thugs to increased the rates of violence in Abak LGA against those supporting his creditors to speak out about the debts.
Speaking with our correspondent on telephone, a man whose name will be hidden against the chairman’s thuggery team, expressed disappointment on the action of the council boss who parades himself as a legal practitioner.
“The party man said Imo Williams is bitting more than he can chew, what made him feel what is on ground is thugs matter? Why is he using thugs to intimidate people? Did the people use thugs when they entrusted him with whatever transaction they made? He must be very “stupid” person to attack people with thugs.”
He called on the state government to step into Abak LGA as a matter of urgency to punish the Chairman against his thuggery and cultism activities in the area and at the same time pay off the furniture dealer Mr Uwem Obot and others of his creditors.
