The immediate past governor of Imo State, Senator Rochas Okorocha, has said a member of the recovery committee set up by Governor Emeka Ihedioha slapped his daughter, Uloma Nwosu, during one of their recovery operations of government properties at All-In furniture store linked to Okorocha’s wife, Nkechi.
During the exercise, several properties were recovered which the Jasper Ndubuaku-led recovery committee claimed were governments.
Rochas was not pleased with the treatment his daughter got so he has voiced out.
His words, “She had gone to ALL-IN furniture store owned by her mother to know why members of the committee invaded the store and began to tamper with the items, including the ones inside the containers, especially when EFCC had marked the shop for investigation and are also following petitions to that effect.
“Three days after the incident, neither the governor nor the government he heads or even the head of the committee has deemed it necessary to apologise to the woman, the family and the former governor. And they have not denied knowledge of the ugly incident like they had denied knowledge of similar cases in the past.
“It is even more disturbing that instead of doing the needful, the government dished out a very heartless falsehood, that the mob wanted to lynch Mrs Nwosu. And their media collaborators who they had assembled the previous week and struck an ungodly deal with, went to town with such unfounded story.
“In the history of Imo State, since its creation, Rochas Okorocha is the only person who had governed the state and after leaving office, the children stayed behind in Owerri to run their businesses without a Police escort and also move freely.
“The daughters have their shops in Owerri and are physically managing them. The first son, Aham Rochas Okorocha, has his barber’s shop along MCC/Uratta Road and is also managing it. No Imo man or woman can raise a finger against any member of Okorocha’s family.
“Okorocha’s achievements are available and verifiable. And that is why the PDP government’s efforts to blackmail the former governor have continued to hit the rocks.”
