TRAGIC: Nnamdi Azikwe’s Memorial Status Burnt Down by Hoodlums

The inferno attack across states of the federation seems to be increasing as hoodlums burns and destroy properties. Now, the statue of a pioneer President of Nigeria, the late Dr Nnamdi Azikiwe, has been burnt by hoodlums infiltrating #EndSARS protesters in Onitsha, Anambra State.

The statue can be cited at Denis Memorial Grammar School Roundabout, Awka Avenue, Onitsha, known as Zik Roundabout.

While vandalising the effigy, the protesters were heard shouting, “You put us in this mess by championing one Nigeria,” “You are the cause of our trouble,” amongst other uncomplimentary remarks.

Narrating the incident, a kinsman of Azikiwe, Victor Ononye, described the incident as heresy and sacrilegious.

“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.
