Chukwuemeka Ujam: The day he was caught with 4,000 PVCs

When some amazing things happen and some people exclaim, only in Nigeria! Do not blame them because there are certain inexplicable occurrences that can only happen in Nigeria.

How can one explain the case of Mr. Chukwuemeka  Ujam, who contested for Nkanu East/West Federal House of Representative seat. He was arrested days before the election with 4,000 PVCs by some very eagle-eyed military personnel while on a stop and search operation in Enugu State, South East Nigeria.

Ujam: With his certificate of return

Ujam: With his certificate of return

The very dejected  Ujam was ordered to sit on the floor and  consequently detained. His photograph with the evidence were taken and widely circulated but it seems via some magic or what is usually known as “order from above” he may escape prosecution, because not only is he a free man, he has been “elected” into the Federal House of Representatives! And the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has even issued him a Certificate of Return

As if to spit on the law of the land, a cheerful Ujam and his supporters were at the INEC office to pick his certificate of return-and he had a big smile on his face.

Just yesterday, the Acting Inspector-General of Police, Mr. Solomon Arase promised not to spare election offenders and vowed to prosecute them, many want him to begin his work with the case of Mr. Ujam.
