How Alex Otti stole my father’s property and threatened to kill me-Arochukwu man cries out








Q:  CAN WE MEET YOU?


My name is Edward Kanu Obiakor Jnr, from ujari village Arochukwu in Abia State. I am the only son of late Prof Edward Kanu Obiakor, the pioneer Rector of Fed. Polytechnic Ado Ekiti.

Q : RECENTLY, FEW DAYS AGO OR SO TO SAY, YOU TOOK TO YOUR FACEBOOK PAGE WHERE YOU LAID A CLAIM THAT A SAID PIECE OF LAND BELONGING TO YOU WAS FORCEFULLY TAKEN AWAY FROM YOU BY DR. ALEX OTTI. CAN YOU TELL US WHAT HAPPENED?



Sometime in 2015, Dr. Alex Otti’s Helicopter, grazed the roof of my late father’s filling station located beside his house in Arochukwu. So I searched for his number, and I called him and asked him to renovate the roof  because I wanted to rent the filling station out. He said his PA will take care of it and he furthermore asked me to sell the said property to him, which I refused.
I told him it is not for sale, that that is the only property belonging to my late father that remains. Then he said whenever I am ready to sale I should let him know. I had to put up a notice in the filling station, writing “this property is not for sale, beware of 419”.

I am based in Port Harcourt, sometime in 2016, I was called from the village that caterpillars and bulldozers are in the filling station, bulldozing the property. Before I ran down to Arochukwu the filling station was already bulldozed . When I made my enquiries, I was told that Dr. Alex Otti was the man behind the bulldozing of the filling station.

Q:  WHEN YOU HEARD, WHAT MEASURES DID YOU TAKE TO DRAW THE ATTENTION OF DR. ALEX OTTI TO THESE THINGS YOU COMPLAINED ABOUT NOW? HAVE YOU EVER CALLED HIM? DID YOU SEEK TO FIND OUT WHY HE WENT INTO YOUR FATHER’S PROPERTY, WHICH IS YOUR PROPERTY?



When I got to the village and saw the situation of things, I mean the filling station being bulldozed by Dr.Alex Otti, I ran to the Eze Aro in Council, the council of chiefs in Arochukwu, when I got there, I laid a complain to them and they said I should bring N8,500 to summoun Dr. Alex Otti, so that they will know the cause of his action. I provided the N8,500, gave it to them and Dr. Alex Otti was summouned. They gave me a date to appear in the King’s palace, on that day Dr. Alex Otti sent one Mazi Nkem Okoro, former Local Government Chairman in Arochukwu Local Government, to represent him. The cabinet gave us another date to come for the hearing of the case, on that day I came to the king’s palace but Mazi was no where to be found. They adjourned the case to another day. I also came alone, Mazi Nkem Okoro did not come, being Dr. Alex Otti’s representative in the matter. They adjourned this case to more than five times, I came alone, Mazi Nkem Okoro was no where to be found. From the look of things I saw that something has gone wrong in giving me the justice I required. I aslo went down to Isiala Ngwa, to report the matter, where Dr. Alex Otti comes from, they also did nothing about the case, so I had to go online to cry out for help.

Q: HAS ANY STRUCTURE BEEN RAISED IN THE FILLING STATION? WHAT IS THE SITUATION OF THE SAID FILLING STATION RIGHT NOW?


The filling station has been bulldozed entirely and Dr. Alex Otti went further to fence the filling station, so right now I don’t have access to go into the said land. You know the filling station shares the same fence with his compound, so after bulldozing the filling station he fenced it, joining it with his compound in Arochukwu.

Q:  NOW THAT YOU HAVE TRIED ALL THESE MEANS, THE TWO MEN YOU MENTIONED AND NONE OF THEM SEEMED TO HAVE PAID OFF, WHAT IS YOUR NEXT MOVE?



I believe peace is the best solution to this matter, I don’t have money to take up the matter that is why I went on facebook to make the matter public, so as to get help from anywhere possible. I have also contacted Joseph Otti, being Dr. Alex Otti’s younger brother, I begged him to grant me audience so that I can expalin things to his brother, but he refused, rather he began threatening me, saying his brother bought the filling station.
If Dr Alex Otti can take away my inheritance from me without my consent, then I am afraid about what they could do to me. They have no regard for my late father, a Prof of such reputation, they have no regard for me being the only son of that late Professor. All these while, I have been running around looking for people to help me.
To all Abians, please intervene in this matter because I have nobody, I am just a young graduate without a job and being the only son of my father I don’t think Dr. Alex Otti did the right thing by taking away my father’s property. I also voted for him last election and I am very very disappointed that the only way he could thank me was to rip me off my inheritance. Please I am using this means to appeal to Abia Citizens to help me in this case.
