Information reaching IMO STATE BLOG confirms that the immediate past Governor, Chief Ikedi Ohakim has been invited for questioning by Security operatives in Abuja.
Chief Ohakim’s invitation is said to be in connection with a broadcast SMS message which speculated Governor Rochas Okorocha had been arrested in London in company of a business associate.
The text message read:
Imo gov, Rochas Okorocha who was quizzed over d weekend by d Met Police, London & his partner, Tony Chukwu who was detained has been released. Okorocha was released on self recognition while Chukwu was detained after a discovery of a total of 10million dollars in their room following a raid by d Met Police.Okorocha’s trip to London is believed to have been triggered by fear of d impending supreme court judgment against his election.Earlier Okorocha had been defrauded of 8m dollar by Terry Waya who had promised to help him reach the judges. Consequently, the incident forced Okorocha to miss his scheduled return yesterday to attend d funeral rite of d late Dim Chukwuemeka Ojukwu at Zungeru,Niger State.
Hours following the broadcast on Monday afternoon, security operatives aided with satellite technology traced the messages to Chief Ikedi Ohakim’s Mary Slessor St. residence in Asokoro, Abuja.
This is the kind of news our brothers in Edo will hear and shout “OSANOBUA!! (God Almighty).
Before we get carried away with this shocking revelation, we must remember that there is no smoke without fire. Was there an arrest in London involving Governor Okorocha or are there agents of confusion who have been mandated to fuel propaganda ahead of the March 2nd Supreme Court judgement?
IMO STATE BLOG made contact with the Senior Special Assistant to Governor Okorocha on Media, Chinedu Offor. He informed our reporter that he was with the Governor in Abuja and dismissed the story behind the text message as cheap blackmail.
“This is fiction from the devilish imagination of a desperate opposition who have failed in their bid to steal the people’s mandate and return to Government House through intimidation and blackmail. Having failed at the courts, they have resorted to their well known but worn out tactics of internet fictitious stories.
His Excellency, Owelle Rochas Okorocha remains focused and will not be distracted by the demonic and rejected few bent on reversing the tremendous successes of the Rescue Mission. It is hardly a surprise that those who ran the State to the ground and are being investigated by the authorities are desperately trying to cover their misdeed by slandering the people’s Governor. Their wicked lies will fail just like their numerous evil plans. Imo must be better” He said.
