The Imo State Government has declared that former Governor Rochas Okorocha has continued to dance naked in the streets and behave like someone, who is on a journey of self-destruction.

A statement issued yesterday by Oguwike Nwachukwu, Chief Press Secretary and Media Adviser to Governor Hope Uzodimma said: “It is incomprehensible that someone, who governed Imo for eight years, could back a suspect in a criminal case where the person had already volunteered statement to the police.

“From all indications, Okorocha’s conduct clearly demonstrates that he is privy to the insecurity in Imo State, but hiding behind his fingers to shout hoax and we can only hope that the security agencies are taking note of his (Okorocha) comments on the security situation in the state.”

“Rather than be in a hurry to say that nobody is ready to listen, Okorocha should wait for the outcome of the investigation of the case involving his son In-law, Uche Nwosu, who was arrested on Sunday for alleged sponsorship of bandits and insecurity in Imo,” the statement reads. 

He stated that Okorocha should be worried that his name was mentioned, adding that the seriousness Imo people attach to the killing of their kinsmen by suspected bandits, not issues the former should relive on television as he did when he governed the state for eight years.

“If anything, he has shown that his coming to Imo as governor was an accident and Imo people will not tolerate such accident a second time. Whipping up sentiments cannot help him or his collaborators. 

“Governor Hope Uzodimma can never join issues with a man, who has remained consistent in telling lies,” the statement added.
