A former governor of Imo state, Rochas Okorocha, has said that the governor of the State, Hope Uzodinma, was attacking him out of “hatred and vendetta.”
Okorocha, in a statement issued in Owerri the state capital on Wednesday by his spokesperson, Sam Onwuemeodo, boasted that the governor will “not win me.”
The statement was reacting to Tuesday’s demolition of the parameter fence of the building housing Reach FM radio station, Owerri, owned by his daughter, Mrs Uloma Nwosu.
He said that the demolition of the parameter fence of the building housing the radio station was yet another war of envy and conspiracy against him.
The statement read, “We also want to inform the general public that, on Tuesday, February 23, 2021, about 2pm, a group of armed thugs and men in mobile Police Uniform, with some Government officials stormed the Reach FM Radio Station, Owerri, in a Commando manner, pulled down the fence and the gate of the Station.
“They did that after they had chased away the workers of the Station. Imo State Commissioner for Lands, Chief Enyinnaya Onuegbu, had said that the fence and the gate were erected on the road.
“The building housing the Reach FM Radio was acquired by Senator Rochas Okorocha about twenty-five years ago. And subsequent administrations, both Military and Civilian, had never raised any issue about the property where the Radio Station is located.
“And that untenable claim by Onuegbu was to justify another nauseating action. Before the Radio Station, you get two hotels and Six other buildings in front. Besides and behind the Station, you also have several other buildings. And there is no way a building at the Centre of other buildings, including hotels, could have been on the road.
