ATTACKS: Okorocha spoils for ‘war’, urges supporters to rise, resist Ihedioha



IMO GUBER: Okorocha blames Oshiomhole, says posterity will judge him

Immediate past governor of Imo State, Rochas Okorocha, has said that he would no longer tolerate attacks from his successor, Governor Emeka Ihedioha.

Okorocha, who currently represents Imo West at the Nigerian Senate, also urged his supporters in the state to rise and resist further attacks from Ihedioha and his Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) led administration.

The governor stated this on Tuesday when he spoke with his supporters upon arrival in Owerri, the state capital.

Noting that no form of intimidation from Ihedioha can cow him into submission, he said, “I will no longer tolerate any form of attacks from Governor Emeka Ihedioha and I am charging my supporters to rise up and resist further attacks from the PDP-led government; nobody should intimidate you, Imo belongs to all of us.”

The former governor further told his supporters not to allow his successor, who he said was “crookedly put into office”, to continue to intimidate them.

Ihedioha is said to have destroyed some of the monuments erected by Okorocha in the state.

He also recently, set up a committee to probe contracts awarded by Okorocha’s government and those by other former governors of the state since the return of democracy in 1999.
