The Imo State Police Command has finally deemed it safe enough for the former governor of the State and current Senator representing Imo West Senatorial District Owelle Rochas Okorocha to return to his house after they successfully dispersed hoodlums who attempted to harm the former governor.

Okorocha, a founding father of the All Progressives Congress has been having a running battle over the soul of the Party with Governor Uzodimma, whom some commentators describe as an imposed governor and a gatecrasher into the APC.

As part of strategies to weaken the presidential hopeful’s political clout, Uzodimma has allegedly deployed all manners of intimidation in trying to get back at him.

This includes the forceful invasion and sealing of his properties, threat to demolish his businesses and revocation of land titles allocated by the former governor.

Unable to bear these affronts on his political and commercial interests any further, the lawmaker’s supporters had resisted the government’s attempts to forcefully take over the finely situated Royal Palm Apartments belonging to Okorocha’s wife which was sealed by the State Government.

On hearing about this, Okorocha had to visit the property to assess the situation as well as advise his teeming supporters not to resort to violence or any act capable of breaching the peace of the State.

In an unexpected twist, some gunmen led by Nze Chinasa Nwaneri, Special Adviser to the governor on Special Duties, invaded the premises, unleashing mayhem on the former governor, his close aides, security aides and ordinary Imolites sympathetic to his plight. Dr. Anwukah, the former governor’s son-in-law and the former governor’s Police orderly were among those who sustained gunshot injuries.

A detachment of police officers were promptly deployed to save the situation and ensure the safety of the Imo West Senator.

As a safety measure, he was taken to the Imo State Police Command headquarters, Owerri, where he had a friendly interaction with the Commissioner of Police and other  Police officers, until the police considered it safe enough to allow him to go home.

The former governor shall continue his usual meetings with his numerous political associates and friends at his Spibat residence in Owerri, while he will be briefing his Imo West constituents on some of his legislative strides in the past one year at his Urashi Resort residence in Ogboko, Idea to South.
