The former Senator who represented Okigwe Zone in the National Assembly between 1999 to 2007, Member National Communication Commission and APC Chieftain, Senator Ifeanyi Godwin Araraume who has been away returned to Owerri the Imo State capital weekend to commiserate with the people of Owerri and Market men and women  grieving over the demolition of Ekeukwu Owerri Market which caused the death of little boy Master Somtochukwu Ibeanusi and many others wounded, while properties worth hundreds of millions were destroyed.

Senator Araraume who was perplexed when he visited the Federal Medical Centre Owerri, FMC, to see the surviving victims of the Ekeukwu Owerri Market Disaster after paying a visit to the family of the 10 Years old Boy killed by stray bullets made necessary donations and supports to the families, the wounded victims and also those in the hospital ward.
According to his social media Aide , Awurum Darlington,  the 2007 and 2011 governorship candidate of PDP and ACN called the attention of his media aide while in Abuja saying, "No! Darlington we must visit home, the videos and pictures of this young girl cuddling and grieving over the death of her brother has taken over my bed and pillows, it goes to bed before me and wouldn't let me sleep. I cannot be in Abuja while my people languish in pain and agony. I must go home even if it means stepping in the crossfire, let me grief with them and feel this pain with them. Listen Darlington, as leaders, we must learn to take responsibility for our actions and inactions directly and indirectly, while we try to make amends and positive changes that has the powers to rewrite the wrongs".

Social media Aide to the former Senator in a press statement made available to Ifeanyicy.com said "Senator Araraume didn't just come back for coming back sake, but showed love and compassion. When we got to the Ibeanusi's, the little girl wasn't at home but he insisted we must wait for her to come no matter how long it takes. He equally visited Chief Leonard Osuji, an Owerre leader also injured.

Amongst other things...
1. He gave the little girl whose brother was shot scholarship from secondary to university level through (Destiny Foundation).
2. He is paying the lease (rent) of 1,000 shops for the affected traders whenever the shops are ready at the new relocating site under construction by the Rescue Mission Government.

3. He made a donation of reasonable amount to FMC as the deposit for the treatment of the other victims (I wouldn't mention the amount here because it's wow ...men dey here)
4. He gave them donations in cash each, as feeding allowances, gave other patients in same ward feeding allowances as well, then promised to pay up 100% the bills of those victims immediately they are fit for discharge.

5. Instructed the doctors to do everything within their powers to make sure all the necessary drugs and attention are given to them no matter the cost.
6. He also advised that should their be any need to fly any of them abroad for proper medical attention, that they should not hesitate to call his attention for the arrangements.
7. Promised the family justice for their dead son.

While showing sympathy to the families and Victims of Ekeukwu Owerri Market Disaster, the APC Chieftain and 2019 gubernatorial aspirant in his words said , "the government is designed to be the people's government and should be for the people. No government would wish her subjects death because no king reigns without subjects and no leader leads without followership. Though the planning and implementation may seem inappropriate, but it doesn't literally convey that the governor doesn't mean well for his people. I believe in dialogue and rule of law and that is why many of you have captured me in your publications seeking redress through the ambits of law whenever I feel any irregularity in both civil and political issues instead of causing troubles".
