N1.1bn Scam: Community indicts Rochas’ aide -Uzoka, wife over Niger Delta fund

The people of Orsu Obodo community, Oguta LGA in Imo State have alleged that the commissioner for Niger Delta Affairs, Hon Jones Uzoka and wife pocketed a whopping sum of N1.1billion meant for the community development.The money was meant for road construction in the community.
The community alleged that Hon Uzoka was given one billion naira by the state Gov ernor,Owelle Rochas Anayo Okorocha for the repairs and construction of some  roads in the area, while his wife allegedly diverted one hundred million naira from Engr Kingsley Uju, Deputy Chief of Staff, Imo State Government House, as financial grant to the women of Orsu Obodo community.
An indigene of the community and prophet of God, Prophet Skarry Mongo who opened up on the issue, recently stated that Hon Uzoka sabotaged his own people by pocketing such huge sum of money which would have gone a long way in putting infrastructure in the community and in the process reduce hardship and suffering of the oil rich people.
According to the renowned Prophet, in a desperation effort to cover his tracks the commissioner tarred one portion of the community road which is not up to one kilometre and subsequently retired the balance into his private pocket.
The cleric further revealed that while they were smarting from that alleged fraud the Commissioner’s wife, Lolo Lucy Uzoka could not also account for the one hundred million given to Orsu Obodo women as aid.
Prophet Mongo insisted that the best thing both husband and wife would do,so as to be accepted wholeheartedly by the people is to  come forward to give account of monies they have received on behalf of the community from government and putting machinery in motion to ensure that they are deployed to the projects and programs the funds are meant
Efforts made to get Hon Uzoka ‘s own version of the story proved abortive as text messages and telephone calls to him were never responded to as at Press time .
Reacting further,the Prophet said he is embittered by the level of hardship in the area in spite of the fact that they are  an Oil rich community in the state.
According to him Jones Uzoka has equally said to have diverted job opportunities given to youths of the area.
He also alleged that the commissioner has also Abandoned the refurbishing of their only Secondary School-St Michael,even when government reportedly gave him money to do repair works there.
” There are no more works going on in the school since last year, he lamented.
Our people want him to urgently account for the monies allegedly give to him,on our behalf to develop the area before the youths get angry. ”
Himself and the wife should tell us what happened to these funds”,he concluded.
