The former Governor of Imo State Senator Rochas Okorocha appears to be in fresh trouble, following plans to issue him a quit notice to vacate his present private residence in Owerri by the people of Ihitte Mbieri in Mbaitoli Local Government Area of Imo State.
Senator Okorocha whose private estates in Owerri were recently sealed by the Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC) was said to have acquired his expansive private residence in Owerri from Spibath Construction Company before he became governor of Imo State.
In an interview with Daily Independent, the Ihitte Mbieri Community President General Chief Chima Ahanaotu said that Senator Okorocha forcefully acquired the said land without proper investigation.
He said that the administration of the former governor of old Imo State under the watch of Chief Samuel Onunaka Mbakwe leased the controversial land to Spibath and according to Ahanaotu the land reverted back to the owners immediately Spibath left hence it didn’t serve the purpose to which the land was leased.
He vowed to mobilise all members of his community and head to Government House Owerri and Imo State House of Assembly to protest against Okorocha’s forceful conversion of community land.
“Our properties have been forcefully converted by some individuals. Lands occupied by Spibath, Shell Camp, Alvan Ikeokwu Federal College of Education belong to us. The have all been taken away by force and without compensation.
