PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT
It has come to the knowledge of the Deputy Speaker, Abia State House of Assembly, Rt Hon Augustine Okezie, that some disgruntled and criminal elements are using his name to extort undiscerning people along Bende, Ajata and Isieke Roads in Umuahia North LGA.
This notification is to bring to the knowledge of the general public that the Deputy Speaker has and will not direct or dispatch persons to engage in such nefarious activity as it amounts to economic sabotage and at cross purposes with the policy thrust of the Governor Alex Otti administration.
Security operatives are by this annoucement placed on alert to arrest and prosecute forthwith, any person caught extorting persons in the name of the Deputy Speaker.
To be forewarned is necessary as the full length of the law shall be deployed to do whatever is needful to put to an end such embarrassing situation.
Rt Hon Augustine Okezie
Abia State House of Assembly.
