Imo State Governor’s Aide Must Apologise For Hitting my Daughter – Okorocha
The immediate-past Governor of Imo State, Rochas Okorocha, has asked his successor, Emeka Ihedioha, to order a member of the Committee on Recovery of Stolen State Government Assets to tender a public apology for allegedly slapping his daughter, Uloma-Rochas Nwosu.
Recall some days ago, a video surfaced of Okorocha’s daughter Uloma-Rochas Nwosu being slapped by Ihedioha’s aide, an act the former governor has now requested must be properly settled.
Okorocha, in a statement on Sunday in Owerri by his media aide, Sam Onwuemedo, said her daughter was slapped when she went to the ‘ALL-IN’ furniture store owned by her mother, to know why members of the committee invaded the store.
Insisting that the store was sealed by the Economic and Financial Crimes for investigation, Okorocha recounted not using his power as Governor of the state to intimidate anybody.
“On Friday, July 26, 2019, a member of the Committee on Recovery of Government Property set up by Governor Emeka Ihedioha and led by Mr. Jasper Ndubuaku, slapped the daughter of the former governor of Imo State, Mrs. Uloma Rochas Okorocha, when she went to the All-In Furniture Store owned by her mother, to know why members of the committee invaded the store and began to tamper with items, including the ones inside the containers, especially when the EFCC had marked the shop for investigation also following their petitions to that effect” the statement read in part.
In reaction to the claims made Governor Ihedioha through his Special Adviser on Media, Steve Osuji said “We are not aware that such thing happened. This blackmail will not stop the state government from recovering movable government assets which were stolen. If they are sure of what they are saying, let them go to court. They know the right thing to do.”
Okorocha’s first daughter is married to former Action Alliance 2019 Governorship candidate Uche Nwosu, who came second in the last governorship election in Imo state which Emeka Ihedioha won.
