Okorocha demands apology from Gov Ihedioha over alleged assault on his daughter



Gov Okorocha replies APC over comment he is a bad loser

The immediate past governor of Imo State, Rochas Okorocha, is demanding an apology from his successor, Emeka Ihedioha, over an alleged assault on his daughter.

In a statement signed and issued by his Special Adviser on Media, Sam Onwuemeodo, Okorocha asked Ihedioha to tender “unreserved apology” to his family, especially his daughter, for the assault allegedly meted to her by members of the committee on recovery of looted property in the state.

According to him, the Chairman of the committee, Mr. Jasper Ndubuaku, slapped his daughter, Mrs. Uloma Rochas Nwosu, at the ALL-IN Furniture Store owned by her mother when she sought to know why members of the committee “invaded” the store.

Okorocha said he was miffed that Ihedioha had not denied knowledge of the incident which took place on Friday, July 26th.

“It has, therefore, become necessary to ask the governor and his government to apologise to Mrs. Uloma Rochas Nwosu, the family and the former governor.

“It is even more disturbing that instead of doing the needful, the government dished out a very heartless falsehood, that a mob wanted to lynch Mrs. Nwosu and their media collaborators who they had assembled the previous week and struck an ungodly deal with them, went to town with such unfounded story,” he said.

“In the history of Imo State, since its creation, Rochas Okorocha is the only person who had governed the state and after leaving office, the children stayed behind in Owerri to run their businesses without police escort, and also move freely,” the statement added.

Okorocha also alleged that, “The Ndubuaku-led committee has no template, and that is why they storm private houses, offices and shops under the guise that they have come to recover government’s property.
