The lawmaker representing Adoka/Ugboju constituency at the Benue State House of Assembly, Okloho John Adam has been at the receiving end of harsh criticisms for abandoning his constituents in the midst of crisis.

The aggrieved people wondered why the lawmaker decided to run to Abuja when his constituency is boiling to organize a ‘shameful’ press conference.
IDOMA VOICE reports that eight persons, including a Maj Lawrence Ugbo were killed after crisis ensued between two political rivals in the community.

The bloody incident reportedly erupted between two brothers identified as Ijachi and Benjamin Ejeh Udeh both born of the same mother in Ugboju Ehaje.

The Otukpo LGA chairman, George Alli, who spoke with our correspondent live from the crisis-ridden community, said he had taken some of the victims to various hospitals for treatment.

However, the people were shocked only to read on social media that their lawmaker was somewhere posing before the camera in the name of press conference in Abuja while his people were being butchered and burnt to ashes.

Some of the residents, who spoke with IDOMA VOICE from Ugboju described the lawmaker’s act as shameful and disgraceful.

One Edoka Aji, who speak with our reporter Thursday night said Okloho has not been able to lived up to expectation since he came on board.

“The only place he is active is Facebook. Why did he decide to run to Abuja while his constituency is boiling? Was he not supposed to visit the community to have firsthand views of the incident before running to pose before camera in Abuja in the name of a shameful press conference? I read his comment on blogs last night and I was ashamed. George Alli was with us throughout yesterday. Does that mean he does not have contacts in the media?” he wondered.

Another Samson Edoga, financial secretary of Ugboju Progressives Youth Vanguard, Abuja branch said Okloho only oversees his constituency from Abuja.

“One wonders if he is representing Ugboju at the Peace Corps headquarters in Abuja because before you say Jack Robinson, he has ran to PCN office as if that is the place sent him to.

“The PCN boss he is following has built and donated a police station to Ugboju people but he is dancing around him aimlessly. It is sad!”

Other persons who spoke with our reporter said they the acclaimed evangelist does not have the interest of the people at heart.
