The Son-in-law to Senator Rochas Okorocha, Dr. Uzor Anwuka, who was allegedly shot in Owerri, the Imo state capital when suspected hoodlums attacked the ex Governor of Imo state will be flown abroad for treatment after three failed surgeries.

Dr. Anwuka, an American trained medical doctor was shot on the left leg by the hoodlums who attacked Okorocha when he attempted to unseal one of his sealed properties, the Royal Spring Palm Hotel which was seized by the State Government.

Anwuka who disclosed his ordeal when his father-in-law visited him at the hospital, said he’s been at the hospital for six days and not getting any better after being operated on three times.

He said;

“On the day of the incident my father-in-law called me that he was in Owerri to see his seized property and I drove down their to see him.

“On getting there, I saw a crowd of thugs. They had guns, cutlasses and other dangerous weapons, they started harassing everyone including my father-in-law (Okorocha).

“It was when they were asked to round us up that they started shooting. I made to climb the fence but I was hit by bullet and I fell into the bush and I was there for several hours before I was rescued and brought to the hospital.

“I have been in this hospital for six days and my leg have been operated three times but it is not getting better. So I will be going out to get a better treatment”.

Okorocha on his part described the attack as a foiled assasination attempt on his life. He added that his major concern is to save his son-in-law.

Okorocha said;

“What I am concerned now is about his life, I thank God that he is alive but the report I am getting from the hospital is not quite pleasing regarding the three surgeries so far conducted since his arrival and we are hoping that he should be flown out of the country immediately for further examination.

“It is really sad, this is an assasination attempt, but I thank God he is alive. We’ve concluded arrangements with the hospital to move him out because they are suggesting that he may need some transplant, to cut some part, but we are hoping it will get better”.
