Rochas Oorocha

Over 33 items have been penciled down to be recovered from the former governor of Imo state, Rochas Okorocha.

The items were reportedly looted by the ex-governor while in office.

This was made public by the Imo State government through one of its social media influencers, Ezeafurukwe Paul Ihunanya.

The press release which went viral on various social media platforms on Tuesday, said that the EFCC will not have any reason not to arrest and prosecute the former governor.

It listed among other alleged loots N59.6billion taken from local government system by Okorocha, the Eastern Palm University built with Imo money but personalised by him, N40billion siphoned through the unexecuted 27 general hospitals, the old IBC premises converted to Rochas College of Africa, Westbrook hotels built by Okorocha’s son-in-law, Uche Nwosu with Imo money, the ReachFM radio owned by Uche Nwosu.

The release went on, “Tweeter bites forcefully acquired from Mr. Fans by Okorocha’s sister, Geraldine, the Spibat estate most of which land forcefully taken from Mbieri and Orji people, House of Freeda malls in Owerri, Abuja and Lagos built by Uloma, Uche Nwosu’s wife, recovery of ISOPADEC funds and 13% oil derivation which amounts to over N20billion, recovery of ITC vehicles and investments looted by Okorocha among other loots.”

Meanwhile, in responding to the allegations, the Special Adviser on Media to the former governor, Sam Onwuemeodo said that “no court of competent jurisdiction had ordered the EFCC to recover even a pin from the ex-governor Okorocha.”

He said those behind the gimmicks could not reason to the extent of knowing that if the court at any level, had ordered EFCC to recover all that they listed from Okorocha, the commission would not have again invited him for questioning.

“Okorocha’s accusers should tell their audience which court in the land had ordered the EFCC to recover those items and the name of the presiding Judge,” he said.

The media aide further said the release was a clear expression of a bottled up envy against the former governor over his outstanding achievements in eight years.

He said that his (Okorocha’s) critics should bury their faces in shame and desist from marketing falsehood and taking delight from blackmailing an innocent man, reminding them that the consequences would be grave.
