Suspects named Okorocha, Uche Nwosu as sponsors of ‘unknown gunmen’ – Imo government

Published

on

Imo State Government on Tuesday, said that suspects have named Senator Rochas Okorocha and ex-governorship candidate, Uche Nwosu as sponsors of bandits and kidnappers.

Governor Hope Uzodinma’s Chief Press Secretary, Oguwike Nwachuku, in a statement, said the duo were funding violence in the State.

Okorocha and Nwosu were specifically accused of fuelling “kidnapping, banditry and arson”.

Nwosu, Okorocha’s son-in-law, was a Deputy Chief of Staff and Action Alliance (AA) Imo governorship candidate in 2019.

“Okorocha and Nwosu have been specifically mentioned by suspects who are in the custody of security agents, as being sponsors of kidnapping and banditry in Imo State, using their relationship with former ex-militants to perpetrate the crimes,” he alleged.

Nwachuku said that news of the alleged arrest of the security officers attached to Uzodimma was being spread by the duo with thee aim of stopping the governor’s vow to expose the identities of those behind insecurity and other forms of criminality in Imo.

“The current media frenzy by both Rochas Okorocha and Uche Nwosu appears to be strengthening the notion of their culpability.

“The duo have resorted to publishing falsehood yet again about security officers in the State Government House.

“Their claim of the arrest and detention of a certain Shaba, whom they falsely allege to be the CSO to the Imo State Governor is strange as the Governor’s CSO is not known by the name of Shaba,” he said.

Nwachuku maintained that no security officer in the Governor’s security team was either arrested or is currently unaccounted for.

He said instead of clearing their names, they appear bent on using both overt and covert means to blackmail the Police High Command, “which legitimately arrested Uche Nwosu.”

The public was then urged to ignore reports against the State government, as well as the “failed attempt to frustrate the Imo stakeholders’ meeting taking place on Tuesday”.
