Rochas Okorocha, a former governor of Imo state, has accused his successor, Hope Uzodinma, of sending more than 1000 thugs to attack him.
The former governor made the allegation on Sunday, February 21, via his spokesperson, Sam Onwuemeodo, The Punch reports.
It was earlier reported that Okorocha and some of his political associates stormed Royal Spring Palm Estate, Owerri, and unsealed it.
The property had been sealed by the Imo state government alleging that it was built on one of the state’ green verges against the lawful master plan. The estate allegedly belongs to Senator Okorocha’s wife, Nkechi Okorocha.
The serving senator in the ninth National Assembly was subsequently arrested.
Okorocha’s spokesperson, Onwuemeodo, claimed that Governor Uzodinma’s special adviser on special duties, Chinasa Nwanari, allegedly led thugs who stormed the estate and destroyed vehicles in his convoy.
He said Okorocha’s personal aides were also attacked by the thugs.
