Controversy continues to trail the demolition and urban renewal exercise of the Imo State government led by Governor Rochas Okorocha.

Former Minister of Interior and governorship candidate of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) in the 2015 governorship election, Captain Emmanuel Iheanacho, has expressed concern about the government’s decision.

Speaking through his lawyer, Ikechukwu Ikeji, the former minister condemned the ongoing exercise, saying the government did not follow due process and no clear cut plan has been put in place to compensate those affected.

The fence of one his buildings along Orlu-Amakohia road in the state capital was badly affected.

Captain Emmanuel Ihenacho has vowed to take Government to court as government insists the beautification and urban renewal exercise is in the best interest of the state.

During a routine inspection to some of the sites on Orlu road, the Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha appealed to the people of the state to show understanding and cooperation as the initiative is in the best interest of the state.

He reiterated his plans to dualize and expand most of the major roads within the state capital. As a result, he explained, some fences that do not fall within the required measurement, illegal structures and shanties would be removed. (Channels TV)
