Socialite and son of late jurist, Justice Chukwudifu Oputa, Charles (Charly Boy) Oputa has explained his reason for storming out of a colloquium organized in honour of his late father by the Imo State government on Wednesday.
At the event, Charley Boy suddenly stormed out of the tributes event held at the newly built International Conference Centre in Owerri. Speaking with some journalists in Owerri, Charly Boy accused Governor Rochas Okorocha of trying to use his father’s burial to score cheap political point, describing him as a deceit.
He said the government held a colloquium in honour of his late father and that despite his earlier warning that the burial should not be politicized, Governor Okorocha gathered all the members of his political party and wanted to turn the event into an APC rally. The event, tagged Day of Tributes for Late Oputa, which saw Governor Rochas Okorocha, his deputy, Eze Madumere; Senator Chris Ngige; national chairman of the All Progressives Congress,APC, Odigie Oyegun, former deputy governor of Imo State, Dr. Douglas Acholonu, and many dignitaries present.
Trouble however started that Wednesday evening when the master of the ceremony announced that the next person to speak would be the national chairman of APC, Oyegun. No sooner had the APC boss mounted the rostrum than the angry Charley Boy fumed about how his father’s burial was being turned into APC event.
He suddenly rose from his seat and stormed out of the event taking his siblings and family members along. – Source
