Governor Hope Uzodinma’s Imo State Government has sealed Rochas Foundation College, Orji, in Owerri, the state capital on Tuesday.
Government officials arrived at the old quarters of the staff of Imo Broadcasting Corporation and sealed it. The massive property has been taken over by the state government.
Modestus Nwamkpa, the Senior Special Assistant to the Governor on Print Media who confirmed the development, said that the governor, Hope Uzodinma, was committed to recovering properties of the state allegedly “looted by Okorocha and his family members”.
Nwamkpa said that the governor was implementing the recommendations of various White Papers by committees set up by the state government.
The governor’s print media aide said, “is true”, adding that “Governor Hope Uzodinma is committed to recovering all the properties of the state stolen. This is not a personal war it is just the implementation of the recommendations of the whitepapers of the various committees set up the government.”
But Okorocha’s spokesperson, Sam Onwuemeodo, when contacted said that Uzodinma was jolted by Okorocha’s enormous political capacity.
