This Man is Waiting For Cars To Crush Him to Death After Going Frustrated with Imo State Government (See Photos)
An Imo state man named Chidozie Anyanwu is prepared to die over disappointment and low expectation for everyday comforts in the state. Chidozie was seen lying at MCC/Uratta Road, Owerri, on Monday, declined to leave the street in spite of pleas that he could be smashed to death by vehicles.
He was, nonetheless, deliberately kept away from by drivers, including tricycle riders, employing the street.
As indicated by Punch Report:
He told PUNCH that his mother died recently and was put in the mortuary, adding that she had yet to be buried due to lack of funds.
Anyanwu, who is married with three children, said it was difficult for him to feed his family due to the harsh economy.
He said, “My wife is a civil servant and her salary does not come as and when due. And when it comes, the bank collects all and still debits her account because of a loan she took. The provision shop she opened with the loan is not growing because Imo people don’t have money. People, who used to patronise the shop, are no longer coming and when she calls them, they always say there is no money.”
He said since the last three months, nobody had patronised his shop, adding that his children ate only once in a day.
It was further revealed that Anyanwu later left the road after some residents prevailed on him not to kill himself.
