Current senator and ex Governor of Imo state, Rochas Okorocha has reacted to the destruction of Reach FM’s fence, a property said to be owned by his daughter.
Okorocha who was recently nabbed on Sunday February 21, for unsealing a property sealed by the Imo state government and later freed after the intervention of the south-east governors forum, accused the commissioner for lands in Imo, Eyinnaya Onuegbu of claiming that the property was built on what should have served as a road for residents.
Okorocha in a statement released by his media aide Sam Onwuemeodo, said the property was acquired 25 years ago and subsequent administrations, both military and civilian had never raised any complain about it.
The lawmaker accused Governor Uzodinma of using his position as a governor to create a new Imo State where bloody clashes, killings, thuggery, kidnappings, and tension now pervade or reign. He further added that Uzodinma cannot win the current war between both of them, because no one wins war on the basis of falsehood and deceit.
The statement read;
“And that untenable claim by Onuegbu was to justify another nauseating action. Before the radio station, you get two hotels and six other buildings in front.
“Beside and behind the station, you also have several other buildings. And there is no way a building at the centre of other buildings, including hotels, could have been on the road.
“The pulling down of the fence and gate of the radio station, with indigenes and non-indigenes of the state working there to earn their living, had come two days after the same people had invaded the Royal Palm Hotel with armed thugs and men in police uniform, who claimed to be from the Government House.
“They had earlier looted the hotel under the guise of sealing it.
“To all intents and purposes, Chief Uzodinma has used his governorship to create a new Imo State where bloody clashes, killings, thuggery, kidnappings, and tension, now pervade or reign.
“Aside Okorocha, other Imo people had either been attacked, arrested or detained and homes and offices invaded like that of NLC in Owerri.
“We are not expecting these attacks occasioned by envy, vendetta, conspiracy, hatred, and lack of ideas for good governance to stop. But we shall only continue to inform the public whenever they carry out any fresh attack.
“But obviously, Governor Uzodinma shall not win. What is important in every war is who wins and who loses. Governor Uzodinma cannot win, because no one wins war on the basis of falsehood and deceit.”
