A Mitsubishi Space Wagon Jeep yesterday night, May 19, 2017 ran into a life threatening deep gully caused by the road excavation, along Mcc road by Methodist Bus, exactly in front of Ukoromi and Cocean filling Stations. The incident occurred just before 8.52pm
Ifeanyicy.com reliably gathered that the driver and occupants of the car Jeep narrowly escaped death as they walked away with injuries and emergency services by road users remain on the scene, as last night.
The road has been reduced to a death trap following the excavation caused by the road construction which has remain a nightmare by motorists.
The near abandoned road construction, awarded by Imo State Governor, Owelle Rochas Okorocha two years ago to an unknown contractor who had abandoned the project sites due to non mobilization is alleged to be the cause.
A crane is being brought in Saturday morning to right the car , the road should be cleared for traffic shortly after that,” says Keke Driver.
An eyewitness , Mr Irobi Darlington worried over the sorry but constant development has this to say:
"Just about now at MCC road, another car got into one of the death traps or ditch as u may call it as has been perhaps part of the wickedness of this govt. .........They say Is their style of construction , abii na urban renewal.
Last time when one of the innocent drivers dived into the man made ditch at Okigwe roundabout, the supporters of this govt were going around blaming the driver, instead of blaming their poor construction companies that don't know the meaning and essence of caution tapes on construction sits. Me no wan talk much again oo. " he exclaimed.
