Earlier today, the Ideato South Council of traditional rulers showed up at the government house to pray against the evil motive of the coffin bearing women allegedly sponsored Prof Mrs Onwuliri.
It would be recalled that a few days back, hundreds of women mobilized by the Minister of State for Education, Mrs. Viola Onwuliri stormed Government house to protest against Governor Rochas Okorocha’s administration.
Soldiers reportedly under orders from Ms. Onwuliri also heightened the tension as they positioned one armored personnel carrier (APC) at the entrance of the Government House. Some sources claimed that the soldiers assaulted Mr. Okorocha’s supporters who came out to oppose the rampaging women sponsored by the minister.
Onwuliri and Governor Okorocha have been engaged in a series of verbal feuds, with the minister vowing not to allow the governor to work against President Goodluck Jonathan’s re-election.
Sources said the women who invaded Government House in Owerri, the Imo State capital, were widows recruited from the 27 local government areas. As early as 6.30 a.m., the women assembled along Okigwe Road in Owerri, chanting anti-Okorocha slogans. They then proceeded to Government House with a mock coffin, but security men attached to Government House dispersed them.
LOL!! Talk about drama in high places!
