Scores of youths in Ogbunike community of Anambra State have protested alleged abysmal representation by the immediate past member representing Oyi constituency in the State House of Assembly, Mrs Vivian Okadigbo.

The angry youths who marched carrying placards with different inscriptions also demanded refund of the constituency funds to enable the constituents execute the projects themselves.

They threatened to take up the matter with the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) and Independent Corrupt Practices and other related Crimes (ICPC) if she failed to make the refunds within 30 days.
