BEVERLY HILLS, February 21, (THEWILL) – Former Imo Governor, Senator Rochas Okorocha, has been arrested after he reopened the Royal Palm Estate sealed by the state.
Accompanied by his son-in-law, Uche Nwosu, the former Governor broke the keys to recover the estate belonging to his wife, Nkechi.
Infuriated by the ex-governor’s action, loyalists to the state government confronted them in a clash that left one person injured.
The Imo government on Friday recovered the Royal Palm Estate along Akachi road.
The confiscation, according to the team led by Commissioner for Lands, Enyinnaya Onuegbu, was in compliance with the directive of the Imo State gazette on the report of the Judicial Commission of Enquiry on the recovery of Lands and other related matters.
