Residents protest against building of union secretariat in Anambra
There was tension in Obosi Community, Idemili North Council Area of Anambra State, yesterday, following the protest against the building of a union secretariat in the area.
Residents of Ihionu Street, Ozalla Layout in Obosi Urban, had opposed the building of a secretariat by the leadership of Ozalla Landlord Association, arguing that the project was being built on their only exit road.
Their spokesman, Chief Kelvin Nnandi, who spoke on behalf of the landlords and tenants of Udokamma Zone of the association, said the promoters of the secretariat did not inform the landlords and tenants of Ihionu Street, before President General of the association embarked on the project.
“On Tuesday morning, as many residents have traveled home for the Christmas and New Year, we saw people digging foundation at the entrance of Ihionu Street from Urum and Oraifite streets’ end.
“We tried to stop them and find out what the foundation was all about, but they called the President General of Ozalla Landlords Association, who came and told us that they were building a secretariat for the association.
