The Imo state police command has confirmed that it has arrested the former governor of Imo state, Rochas Okorocha and Senator representing Imo West Senatorial district, in order to find out the reason he led the violent breaking into the government sealed Royal palm spring estate along Akachi road in Owerri.
The State Police Public Relations Officer, PPRO, Orlando Ikeokwu, confirmed this to newsmen in Owerri.
Orlando explained, “The command received a distress call regarding what we termed to be an unrest at Royal Spring palm estate, and the operatives moved to the place we discovered Okorocha led some persons to the place hitherto sealed by the Imo government.
“The command calmed the situation and invited Okorocha, to come and explain why he led the violent breaking into the estate that led to damages.”
Recall that the Imo State Government on Friday seized the Royal Palm Estate on Akachi Road, Owerri belonging to Nkechi Okorocha, wife of former governor of the state, Rochas Okorocha.
It was gathered that the seizure was in compliance with the directive of the Imo State gazette on the report of the Judicial Commission of Enquiry on the recovery of lands and other related matters.
