Angry EndSARS protesters have reportedly set ablaze the statue of pioneer President of Nigeria, the late Dr Nnamdi Azikiwe at Denis Memorial Grammar School Roundabout, Awka Avenue, Onitsha.
The mob went ahead to douse the statue in petrol before setting it ablaze. Explaining their reason for this unexpected action, the angry youth went ahead to blame the late president for being the cause of their problems.
They could be heard shouting;
“YOU PUT US IN THIS MESS BY CHAMPIONING ONE NIGERIA,”
“YOU ARE THE CAUSE OF OUR TROUBLE”
One of the kinsmen of the late Azikiwe, Victor Ononye described the incident as a heresy and a sacrilegious act. He added that a few other items around the statue were totally destroyed and it is shocking that police officers who were few distances away could not intervene.
Shedding more light on the issue, he said;
“THE RIGHT HON DR NNAMDI BENJAMIN AZIKIWE, THE FIRST PRESIDENT OF FEDERAL REPUBLIC OF NIGERIA, MUST BE EXPRESSING REGRETS WHEREVER HIS SPIRIT IS, FOR ATTRACTING INDEPENDENCE TO NIGERIA.
“WHAT HAPPENED AT THE DMGS ROUNDABOUT, ONITSHA, WHICH I SAW WITH MY OWN EYES EVOKED TEARS.
“MISCREANTS, HOODLUMS, GUTTER SNIPPERS, LOAFERS, CHARLATANS, NITWITS, NINCOMPOOPS AND BASTARDS BESIEGED THE STATUE, HUNG A USED TYRE ON HIS NECK, POURED PETROL AND SET IT ON FIRE.
“THEY DECAPITATED HIS HAND AND WENT AWAY WITH HIS TITLE STAFF. THAT WAS THE HEIGHT OF INGRATITUDE BY THE BASTARDS WHO ARE IGNORANT OF HISTORY.
“THEY DESCENDED ON THE VARIOUS ITEMS USED FOR DECORATION OF THE SITE AND TORE THEM TO PIECES. THEY WERE FEW IN NUMBER. WHY THE POLICE, WHO WERE A STONE’S THROW AWAY TO THE ROUNDABOUT, COULD NOT INTERVENE WAS A MYSTERY.
“I SAW TWO VIGILANTE MEN BRANDISHING RIFLES AND RIDING ON A MOTORCYCLE. THEY STOPPED AND THE BOYS HAILED THEM AND THEY DROVE OFF.”
