Anambra physically-challenged woman laments burnt shop, seeks help


Tragedy struck in the industrial town of Nnewi, Anambra State, as a shop belonging to a physically-challenged person, identified as Amobichukwu Amara, got burnt to ashes.

The popular shop owned by Amara, named Lady Whyte Event Planner and Kitchen, located at Umudim-Nnewi, got burnt at about 2.00 am on Tuesday.

Only the shop belonging to the physically-challenged was razed out of about 10 shops in the same location.

No one could ascertain exactly how the shop caught fire but some people said it could be a power surge.

It was gathered that the midnight inferno completely destroyed her shop including items such as deep freezer, power generating set, kitchen utensils, plastic tables and chairs, one hundred and fifty crate of drinks and sundry items.

The burnt shop.

Amara, while speaking to journalists on Tuesday, lamented that all her investment in the shop since she began business there in 2019 has gone down the drain.

She said, “I don’t know why I have to deserve this, there are about 10 shops in this location, yet it is only my own that the night marauders singled out to burn.

“Whoever that did this has finished me. I have been struggling to proof that there is ability in disability, that is why I am not begging for alms to feed, rather I employed a few people to help me with my business.

“The idea of whether the fire was caused by a power surge should be perished because I use a power generating set, I don’t use electricity, I believe certain persons have just decided to punish me for only what God knows,” Amara explained.

The 35-year-old physically-challenged lady, however, said that she was not suspecting anyone as she never had issues with anybody.

“What can I do, I have been pushed to my wits end by perpetrators of this dastard act, I can only hope and pray that affluent people in the society will rise up to my assistance,” Amara said.

The Nnewi-born physically-challenged lady further sought the support of public-spirited individuals in Nnewi and Nigeria at large, affirming that she has been left to nothing.
