Rochas Okorocha, immediate past Governor of Imo, on Sunday, August 18, warned his predecessor’s administration to stop further attacks on his personal property in the state.

The Nation reports that Okorocha spoke in a telephone conversation alleging that the secretary to the Imo state government, Uche Onyeaguocha, broke into his private guest house without warrant or any form of authorisation.

The former governor and now a Senator also claimed that Onyeaguocha chased away security men on duty, broke into the house, ransacked it, took documents before locking it up and going away with the keys.

Okorocha said this is not the first time he was being attacked by the current administration since he left office. The former governor, who warned against taking his silence for granted, added: “In the last couple of months, the government of Emeka Ihedioha has launched and sustained attacks on my property and that of my family members. They had raided my wife and daughter’s businesses places and I have reportes to the authorities.

“Now the Secretary to the State Government (SSG), Uche Onyeaguocha, went to my private guesthouse, chased away the security men and broke into the house, ransacked it and made away with documents, locked up the house and took the keys.

“I have been quiet about all these unwarranted attacks but they should not take my silence for granted.” He warned that Nigeria is a country that is governed by rules and not emotions adding that if the government has anything against him, it should follow the law.

In his reaction, however, Onyeagucha reportedly denied that he invaded Okorocha’s house. The SSG explained that he only recovered the asset following the directives of Governor Emeka Ihedioha that all government properties in the possession of former government officials must be recovered for public use.

Through his media aide, McDonald Enwere, the SSG said: “Okorocha had, in the twilight of his administration, built houses for himself and former governors and these houses have not been utilised and the present governor had directed that all government properties should be recovered.
