1 Mins read

Okorocha was arrested on Sunday after unsealing Royal Spring Palm Estate reportedly linked to his wife, Nkechi.

Former Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha has been arrested by the operatives of the State Police Command.

He was said to have gone to the estate with his supporters, policemen, soldiers and personnel of National Security and Civil Defence Corps and ordered the unsealing of the estate.

The Police Public Relations Officer, Orlando Ikeokwu, confirmed the arrest to Channels Television.

Ikeokwu said the Commissioner of Police, Nasiru Mohammed, invited Okorocha for questioning following his alleged involvement and forceful entry into a property that was confiscated by the Imo state government a few days ago.

The police spokesman said the command received a distress call that there was commotion and violence at the Royal spring palm hotel located at Akachi road in Owerri.

Meanwhile, Okorocha has accused the Imo State Governor, Hope Uzodinma of ordering his arrest.

Speaking to Channels Television via a telephone interview on Sunday, the federal lawmaker said operatives of the Nigeria Police Force attached to the Government House watched as thugs destroyed his vehicles.

“I asked them, what is my offence? They said conspiracy and public disorder. So they said it was the governor that directed them, that made a report to arrest me,” Okorocha said.

“The police whisked me into the pickup and brought me to the police station, I am here now. As I am here, they have not said anything to me,” he said.

Okorocha, who is also ex-Imo governor said he is still shocked over the scenario that played out, noting that many people were injured.
