Okorocha alleges invasion, looting of daughter’s Owerri shop
Immediate past governor of Imo State, Senator Rochas Okorocha, has alleged that a shop belonging to his daughter, Mrs. Uloma Nwosu, located along Port Harcourt Road in Owerri on Thursday evening and some items looted by the Recovery of Moveable Assets Committee constituted by the Emeka Ihedioha administration.
In a statement, yesterday, signed by Okorocha’s media aide, Sam Onwuemeodo, the former governor claimed that the alleged attack was unleashed 48 hours after the Chairman of the committee, Jasper Ndubuaku, had claimed in a press conference that Okorocha and his wife carted away state government property worth about N50billion.
The statement read in part: “The armed thugs not only looted her shop, but looted other shops at the complex belonging to other people. And aside making away with cash, they looted goods worth millions of naira.
“They also attacked all the inmates in that complex and made merry with the drinks in the shops at the complex. They threatened to kill anybody who would bring out his or her phone to video the rampage.
“They left with their loots in buses and also took away a bus belonging to Reach FM Radio parked at the premises. One of the female staff at Mrs. Nwosu’s shop, who told them to allow her take inventory of all they were carrying away, was pushed down and she hit her head on the floor.
“The truth is that these elements are not recovering any property…if they were really serious with the recovery of government properties, they would not have been afraid or reluctant to publish the particulars of the 67 vehicles and details of the N50billion they claimed the former governor and his wife left with?”
It stated that every step must be taken to ensure that the looted items and money are recovered and those involved brought to book.
