I’m not witch-hunting you, Ihedioha tells Okorocha


Imo state governor, Emeka Ihedioha, has debunked the claim made by his predecessor, Rochas Okorocha, accusing him of witch-hunting him over the land allocation and revocation dating from 2006 to May 2019.

In a statement released yesterday titled, “Judicial Inquiry on Lands: The Innocent have nothing to fear” signed by Ihedioha’s Chief Press Secretary, Chibuike Onyeukwu, the governor maintained that the panel he set up to investigate land deals from the later part of Achike Udenwa, full administration of Ikedi Ohakim and Okorocha, was not targeted at any one.

The statement said, “The former governor made several petty allegations re-echoing his lullaby that he has been a target for witch-hunt by Ihedioha, he also said investors were being dissuaded from investing in the state.”

Ihedioha explained that his action was in line with the verdict of the people, driven by ceaseless complaints, petitions and lamentations by citizens of the state of impunity, irregularities and deliberate distortions of the original master plan of the state.

The statement added that the governor was aware of the verbal attacks unleashed against him. “This administration is on course and cannot be distracted by mindless, unfounded allegations which of course are poorly rehearsed diversionary stunts, intended to pull wool over the eyes of Imo people and Nigerians in general, and for the avoidance of doubt; the innocent, have nothing to fear,” the statement concluded.
