Okorocha has been released – Imo police

The ex-governor of Imo State Rochas Okorocha has been released by the Imo State Police Command.

This was disclosed by the Spokesperson for the state police command, Orlando Ikeokwu, on a Channels Television’s ‘Sunrise Daily’ programme on Monday.

Ikeokwu said Okorocha was released on Sunday night after he was “invited” for “questioning” for unsealing the Spring Palm Estate linked to his wife, Nkechi.

“He was released later at night,” the PPRO said, adding, “If anybody is found culpable, definitely, he will be charged to court. If investigation proves that he (Okorocha) has committed an offence, he will be charged to court.”

Earlier, the ex-governor stormed the estate with his supporters, policemen, soldiers and personnel of Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps on Sunday morning and ordered the unsealing of the estate.

Okorocha had alleged that his predecessor, Governor Hope Uzodimma, attacked him with “more than 1,000 thugs” but the state Commissioner for Information, Declan Emelumba, dismissed Okorocha’s claims.

Emelumba said that the former governor’s arrest was in line with the report of a White Paper, which indicated that the Royal Palm Estate in the state was built with taxpayers’ money and not Okorocha wife’s property.
