The Speaker of Abia State House of Assembly, Chikwendu Kalu, has been accused of ordering policemen in the state to shoot officers of the Federal Road Safety Corps on patrol. The incident reportedly happened on Saturday.
According to Punch, the speaker gave the order when the FRSC officers stopped the Sport Utility Vehicle his wife was travelling in along the Umuikaa/Aba-Port Harcourt Expressway. An eyewitness said:
When the vehicle was stopped (by the FRSC officials), the driver refused to stop, only for him to stop at a distance.

The driver reversed the vehicle and it was discovered that a woman in the passenger seat in front, is an officer of the Department of State Services attached to the governor’s wife. The DSS officer ran towards the officer who stopped the vehicle, held him by uniform and dragged him to the ground, accusing him of hitting their vehicle, a reliable source told SUNDAY PUNCH.

The source added that the speaker’s wife allegedly joined the policemen to beat the official.
One of them called the speaker whose village is nearby. He then came with some policemen. He ordered them to shoot the armless officers who were sitting inside the patrol vehicle and mercilessly beat up the team leader.The policemen also forcefully opened the patrol vehicle and went away with the battery. They left the team leader and the other officials that were shot on the road. Other road users helped them to the hospital,” said the source.
