…Okorocha Receives Six Imo Deportees From Gabon, Offers Cash Assistance

Following the commencement of the demolition of another market in Owerri and other perceived alleged misdeeds of the Rochas Okorocha led administration, members of the Civil Society Organizations (CSOs), would on Monday, commence a civil protest in the major capital city.

The protest would be led by former member of the Federal House of Representatives (Owerri Federal Constituency), Uche Onyeaguocha, just as operatives of the Department of State Service (DSS) released Onyeaguocha after he was drilled. 

Speaking in Owerri, Onyeaguocha said he was invited based on a petition by the governor, stating that he was accused of making statements likely to incite the public, adding that he wrote a 20-page statement before he was released.

Onyeaguocha had accused the governor of donating $5 million Dollars to the Ghanaian president for his election last year, and Liberian candidate in the present presidential election, George Weah, $1 million Dollars, among others. He also accused the governor of embezzling Imo money and taking lands with his family members, said to belong to the state.

Meanwhile, Okorocha received six Imo indigenes deported from Gabon for various offences yesterday. Receiving them, the Commissioner for Happiness and Purpose Fulfillment, Ogechi Ololo, said the deportees were the reason the governor created the ministry. He urged the victims not to be demoralised in life because of the treatment in which they had been meted out to by the Gabonese government. He regretted that they were allegedly caught because they had not renewed their resident permit papers, prosecuted and tried, jailed for six months and deported from the prison to Nigeria without anything.
