Okorocha Accuses Imo Govt Of Auctioning His Vehicles
A former governor of Imo State, Rochas Okorocha, claimed on Sunday that the state government had put his personal vehicles and others belonging to his aides and a college named after his foundation up for auction
In a statement issued by his media aide, Sam Onwuemeodo, the Imo West senator accused the Hope Uzodiinma-led administration in the state of tyranny.
He said the vehicles in question were seized following an altercation between Okorocha, his aides, and government representatives at the Royal Spring Palm Estate in Owerri on February 21, 2021.
Okorocha and Uzodinma had been at loggerhead since the governor assumed office in February 2020.
The problem started after Uzodinma declared his intention to probe previous administrations in the state.
The government had seized several properties linked to the former governor, claiming they were proceeds of fraudulent activities.
Uzodinma is currently standing trial for alleged N2.9 billion fraud.
