Former Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha Released
Former governor of Imo State, Rochas Okorocha, has been released.
A spokesperson for the state police command, Orlando Ikeokwu, made this known while featuring on Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily’ programme.
Ikeokwu said Okorocha was released on Sunday night after he was “invited” for “questioning” over the unsealing of the Spring Palm Estate linked to his wife, Nkechi.
“He was released later at night,” the PPRO said, adding, “If anybody is found culpable, definitely, he will be charged to court. If the investigation proves that he (Okorocha) has committed an offence, he will be charged to court.”
Recall that Glamtush had earlier reported that the ex-governor stormed the estate with his supporters, policemen, soldiers and personnel of Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps on Sunday and ordered the unsealing of the estate.
Government officials had also mobilised to the estate, leading to a free-for-all, as cars were smashed and many persons injured.
