The Executive Chairman of Afikpo North Local Government Area of Ebonyi State, Enyim Enyim, is in the news for wrong reason as he is being threatened with court action.
Rightly or wrongly, Enyim is accused by owner of a beer parlour, Mr Francis Ogbonnaya, of half a million naira beer debt, Punch reports.
The paper said, 61-year old Ogbonna, owner of Madison Bar in Osisioma Road, Ihie village in Amasiri area of the state, alleged the council boss of incurring the debt between 2012, when Enyim was the coordinator of Amasiri Development Centre, and 2017 when he eventually became the council chairman.
Giving a breakdown of the debt contained in a petition made available to it, the publication wrote: “On the 24th of November, 2012, Enyim guaranteed for his junior brother, Uga Enyim (Alias Omen) on the day of his marriage drinks to the tune of N24, 950 which he did not pay.
“Between May 2012 and May 2016, Hon. Enyim consumed total drinks worth N326,000.00 with cumulative interest of 15.67 per cent.”
