Sam Onwuemeodo, a media aide to the former governor of Imo State, Rochas Okorocha has been asked not to step feet in his home town again.
A socio-political organisation, Mbaise Youths Congress, said that it barred Onwuemeodo from coming home over his alleged sabotage of the opportunity given to the Mbaise people of Imo State to produce the governor of the state during the last election.
Disclosing this in a statement on Tuesday, the chairman of the group, Eric Amaefule said, “The way and manner Deacon Sam Onwuemeodo has been behaving is amazing to the entire Mbaise nation.”
It said his group members were now in full support of Mbaise League of Professionals’ declaration of Onwuemeodo as persona non grata in Mbaise Nation.
