Senator Okoroch arrested for breaking the seal of a seized hotel
The governor of Imo, Senator Rochas Okorocha, was arrested immediately after demanding Governor Hope Uzodimm to reopen the royal palm estate, which was sealed by the state government.
Accompanied by his son-in-law, Uche Nwos, the former governor broke the keys to return his wife Nkechi’s property.
Furious at the former governor’s actions, supporters of the state government faced them in a clash that wounded one person.
On Friday, the IMO government returned the Royal Palm Estate on Akachi Road.
The takeover, according to a group led by Land Management Commissioner Enyinna Onuegbu, was in line with a directive from the State Official Gazette IMO on the report of the Judicial Commission on Land Reclamation Investigation and other related matters.
