Former Imo State governor, Senator Rochas Okorocha, has sounded the alarm that his successor, Senator Hope Uzodinma is waging a campaign of personal vendetta against him and his family. Okorocha’s media aide, Sam Onwuemeodo, in a statement said, Uzodinma’s ongoing probe of the Okorocha administration was targeted at humiliating him.
Onwuemeodo discounted media reports that a court declined Okorocha’s request to stop his probe by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), describing the reports as baseless and entirely without merit.
“Quickly, we want to state that the court presided over by Justice Ahmed Mohammed did not decline or refused to stop the probe of Senator Rochas Okorocha by EFCC and the Imo State Government. If that report was true, the court would not have again adjourned to Tuesday, July 14, 2020, when the court would decide on the orders sought by Okorocha.
“The most exciting thing that happened in the court on Wednesday, July 8, 2020, was that the judge extracted oral undertaking from the lawyer that represented the Attorney-General of the State, Joseph Matthew; that the panel would not sit again during the pendency of the matter.”
