According to the reports, Oguwike Nwachuku – the Chief Press Secretary to Governor Uzodinma says that the angry youths smashed the car to show their disapproval of Uzodinma addressing community leaders, bereaved families, and traditional rulers rather than the youths directly.

So far, only one of the angry youths who executed the attack has been arrested and below is a photo of the culprit besides the smashed governor’s car;
