A priest of the Anglican Diocese of Owerri was pictured posing before a heap of refuse on Douglas Road, Owerri, while celebrating Nigeria’s 56th independence Anniversary. The photos were shared online and he stated in an interview that it was to protest the dirty lifestyle of people of the state and government negligence.

The Chief Press Secretary to the government Mr. Samuel Onwuemeodo reacted, saying the site was deliberately abandoned, to get back at Owerri people who have been battling the state government over the relocation of the market along the road.
PDP Member Owerri Federal Constituency, Hon. Ezenwa Onyewuchi, along with the Imo State PDP Exco have now cleared the refuse heap. More photos…
