Ntukudeh, Orman Esin’s boys set Uyo on fire

Ntukudeh, Orman Esin’s boys set Uyo on fire


The ongoing war rocking the Akwa Ibom State ministry of Transportation yesterday took yet interesting turn as youths allegedly sponsored by the former Commissioner for Transportation Mr. Godwin Ntukudeh clashed openly with workers currently engaged by the ministry of Transportation to help the ministry in ticket sales.

THE INK gathered that war broke out when some boys loyal to Mr. Godwin Ntukudeh continued in their illegitimate business of collecting monies generated from sales of keke ticket along Aka road in Uyo on Monday. The information on reaching the office of the incumbent commissioner for Transport, Hon Orman Esin did not go down well with some boys charged with the responsibility of remitting the revenue to the State.

Our investigation revealed that Mr. Godwin Ntukudeh since he was sacked from office as a commissioner by Governor Udom has been using clandestine means to siphon monies belonging to the state government.

The fight which started at Obio Imo Street according to eye witnesses’ account spilled into some parts of Aka road. The ugly incident attracted passersby who pulled over their cars to have a swell time watching the serious fight. He said that the men from the ministry of Transport mercilessly beat up one of the boys employed by Mr. Ntukudeh to carry out his unpatriotic acts.

Our reporter learnt that Orman Esin’s boys arrived the scene accompanied with some Hilux load of policemen who helped the men from the ministry of Transport to overpower the illegal boys loyal to the Uruan born Ntukudeh.

Findings by our Paper have also revealed that these discreet actions by the former Transport Commissioner is reason the state government yesterday ordered the immediate ban of two prominent umbrella organizations for tricycle riders in the state.

 The release which was signed the Commissioner for Transport Akwa Ibom State order tricycle operator who has TOAN or other bodies on their vehicles to immediately erase to avoid being persecuted.

Stakeholders in the transport sector in the state believed that Mr. Ntukudeh has been using these various bodies to defraud the state government of monies running into millions of naira.
