About 20 officials of the Anambra State Ministry of Transport Thursday beat a man to death in Onitsha over arguments on the purchase of vehicle emblem.
The man who was identified as Okechukwu Onwuamaegbu was said to be a driver attached to Pentecostal Church, Chosen, in Onitsha.
Eye witnesses said trouble began when the victim was driving along the Enugu-Onitsha expressway and approached the upper Iweka area of the road and was flagged down by the Adhoc staff of the ministry and demanded to see his vehicle emblem.
The driver, it was learnt, alighted from his vehicle and engaged them in an argument which prompted the over 20 staff otherwise called the government ‘agbero’ to descend on him, beating him to a pulp.
The driver, it was also learnt, collapsed in the process in the pool of his own blood as the ministry officials drove away in his vehicle to their office at the water front area of Onitsha.
Individuals who witnessed the event, it was learnt, took the man to the nearby Toronto hospital where he was pronounced dead.
The Divisional Police Officer (DPO) of Onitsha Central Police station, Mr. Isa Abubakar, who confirmed the incident, said two arrests had been made already and that the case had been transferred to the state intelligence and investigative bureau for further action.
