Rochas Okorocha has been accused of masterminding the recent attacks on government properties in Imo State.
A report by Sahara Reporters reveals that Declan Emelumba, the state commissioner for Information, in a statement alleged that Rochas Okorocha hired thugs he gave amnesty to unleash mayhem on government facilities in the state.
Declan Emelumba said the Hope Uzodimma led government has details of how Rochas Okorocha’s Special Adviser organized the thugs that burnt down state properties on April 5.
Emelumba said Okorocha’s aim is to create so much chaos in Imo State so the Federal Government will declare a state of emergency on the state.
He added that Okorocha is fighting back at Hope Uzodimma for insisting on implementing the document that indicted the former Governor. The white paper alleged that Rochas looted the state and grabbed people’s lands while serving as Governor.
“Recall that the man had gone to court to stop the commission from sitting. When that failed, he approached Governor Uzodinma to disband the panels.
“When that failed, he resorted to violence to repossess property government had sealed. That is the motive for the attacks,” the commissioner said
He added that it was not a coincidence that the former governor had not condemned the attacks.
“How come the former governor is not condemning the attacks if not because it is his brainchild’ the statement added
