‘Don’t take my peaceful disposition for granted’- Rochas warns Uzodinma

…he says he will not end well as Governor

Former governor of Imo State, Rochas Okorocha, has expressed fears that his successor, Governor Hope Uzodinma, may not end his tenure as governor of the state on a good note.

Okorocha has also warned Governor Uzodinma not to take his peaceful disposition for granted.

The former Imo governor, who now represents Imo West at the Senate, spoke while addressing his supporters at Spibat mansion in Owerri, the state capital.

He accused the incumbent Imo governor of abandoning governance, saying he “is now pursuing shadows.”

Okorocha, who gave an account of what transpired at the Royal Spring Palm Estate, Owerri, accused Uzodinma of sending over 1,000 thugs to attack him and his aides.

The former governor said, “The way Governor Hope Uzodinma is going, he may not end well as governor. Insecurity is ravaging all. Over ten houses were burnt in Oguta yesterday. He knows what he is doing. He wants everybody to fear him. Instead of him to face governance and pay salaries and secure the state, he is busy chasing shadows of violence.”

The Senator urged the Inspector-General of Police, Muhammed Adamu, to immediately arrest Uzodinma’s Special Adviser on Special Duties, Chinasa Nwaneri, and the governor’s Senior Special Assistant on Youth Affairs, Eric Uwakwe, whom he accused of leading thugs to attack him at the estate.

According to Okorocha, “I immediately call on the Inspector-General of Police to immediately arrest Chinasa Nwaneri and Eric Uwakwe. They are the aides of Governor Hope Uzodinma. They shot my aides and destroyed all my cars. If the police can’t arrest Chinasa Nwaneri who the bad record is known for, they have no right to arrest any citizen of this country. As a senator, I am going to put a formal petition to that effect.

“Hope Uzodinma wants to rule Imo State by intimidation. He is busy demolishing all my projects without building anyone. Uzodinma has taken a personal attack on me and my family. Uzodinma has reported to the EFCC and ICPC and there are probes against me, yet he is bent on fighting me.

“Uzodinma used the police against me yesterday (Sunday). I therefore call on the IGP to probe the actions of Government House, Owerri policemen. Their actions were questionable. Chinasa Nwaneri shot my aide and my son-in-law, Uzor Anwuka.

“Everybody knows that I was not poor before I became governor. Talking about the estate, I was the one who begged my wife to come back home and invest in our state so that our people will have employment.

“More than 200 gunshots were shot at my aides yesterday. Uzodinma must be called to question. The governor was using his position to aid thuggery. Before I went to that estate on Sunday, I called the CP and the Director of DSS and they said they were not aware of the sealing of the estate; therefore, I went there to find those who sealed the estate without the approval of the police and the DSS and moreover, there was no court order. Uzodinma should not take my peaceful disposition for granted.”
