The Committee in charge of Recovering Stolen Imo government assets, which was set up by governor Emeka Ihedioha has told the immediate past governor of the state, Rochas Okorocha, to immediately apologise to the people over the sins he committed against the state.
In a statement issued in Owerri on Sunday by Iheanyi Enwerm, on behalf of the committee said that Okorocha should be in a sober mood owing to the number of government assets recovered from his family members and political allies.
The statement said that vehicles, soundproof power generators, chairs, doors, roofing sheets, rugs, kitchen utensils, had allegedly been recovered from members of Okorocha’s family and political allies.
The statement went further to reveal that looted government assets were discovered at a warehouse in Owerri which allegedly belonged to Okorocha’s wife.
The statement read in part, “Ordinarily, we would have chosen the part of silence since an adage goes that silence can be golden and more so when Imolites have seen with their own eyes how Okorocha looted the treasury and properties of Imo State government which is being recovered by Hon. Jasper Ndubuaku led Committee on Recovery of Government Property.
“It is on record that the Jasper Ndubuaku led recovery team made a publication in various media platforms, where he called for the assistance of patriotic Imolites to help the committee locate government properties, known to have been looted by Rochas Okorocha and his family members were being kept, and this is gradually yielding positive results.
“It is instructive to note that the committee has recovered, vehicles, soundproof generating sets, chairs, doors, roofing sheets, doors, rugs, kitchen utensils, among other things. This, I believe should have sobered the ex-Governor and his family members.”
“Imolites are not surprised that looted government properties were discovered at a warehouse known to belong to Nkechi OKOROCHA, wife of the ex-governor. The biggest assistance we have received has come from the people.The statement urged Okorocha to humble himself and apologize to the people of the state for allegedly aiding the stealing of movable properties belonging to the state government.
