How and why former Imo Gov Rochas Okorocha was arrested in the state

Arrested Okorocha in police van

The Imo state police command has confirmed that it moved former governor of Imo state, Rochas Okorocha and Senator representing Imo West Senatorial district, to its custody to explain why he led violent breaking into the government sealed Royal Palm Spring Estate along Akachi Road in Owerri. 

The State Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) Orlando Ikeokwu, confirmed this to newsmen in Owerri. 

He said that the police moved to Akachi Road when they received a distress call that the Royal Palm Spring Estate sealed by the government had been violently opened by men led by Okorocha. 

“The command received a distress call regarding what we termed to be an unrest at Royal Spring Palm Estate and the operatives moved to the place. We discovered Okorocha led some persons to the place hitherto sealed by the Imo government. 

“The command calmed the situation and invited Okorocha to come and explain why he led the violent breaking into the estate that led to damages.” 

Investigation revealed that also arrested alongside Okorocha are some of his former political appointees, among them, Steve Asunobi, Lasbery Anyanwu and Ijeoma Igboanusi.
