Imo State government has accused the former governor of the state, Rochas Okorocha of gloating over the recent security breaches in the state.
“He is reaping political capital over the unfortunate incidents and had even gone ahead to incite northerners against the government and people of imo State”, the government declared.
Imo State Commissioner for Information, Chief Declan Emelumba stated this on Friday in what seems to be a reaction to Okorocha’s warning to Governor Hope Uzodinma not to politicize the security situation.
Emelumba stated that the former governor was even fuelling the matter to further his political interests.
The commissioner noted that apart from the fact that the former governor has not openly condemned the Imo attacks, he had been busy inciting northerners against the state.
“It is a direct slap on the face of Imo people for Okorocha to say that the cause of the security breaches in the state was poverty and injustice when he greatly impoverished Imo people by mindlessly appropriating their commonwealth in a most unjust manner, as established by the judicial commissions of inquiry that investigated his tenure in office” he said.
