An Imo State Magistrate Court sitting in Owerri, the state capital, has ordered former governor Rochas Okorocha to appear before it on October 8 to defend allegations of breach of public peace levelled against him.

The summons was contained in the suit no: OW/MISC.79/2019, dated September 5, presided over by Magistrate, R. O. C Nworka.

The suit had the state Attorney General, as the complainant and Okorocha as the defendant.

The  court also ordered that Okorocha, who is now the senator representing Imo West senatorial district, be served through substituted means; “by pasting same at his Spibat residence and also publishing same in any daily newspaper within the state.”

The order reads: “It is hereby ordered that the defendant appears in Court on the 8th day of October, 2019 to show cause why he should not be ordered to enter into a recognizance for keeping the peace and to be of good behaviour towards the complainant.

“Complaint has been made that you (Okorocha) have consistently been in the deplorable habit of fomenting trouble and inciting your supporters to disobey the government of the day.

“That you have been in the habit of making seditious and inciting statements against the government.”

Meanwhile, Okorocha, through his Special Adviser on Media, Sam Onwuemeodo, has denied fomenting any trouble, describing the order as embarrassing and in bad faith. (New Telegraph)
