Imo state governor Rochas Okorocha has been fingered as the mastermind of the burning of former governor Ikedi Ohakim’s house in Owerri Imo state. An impeccable source revealed to thesoutheastnewsonline that it was one of the many strategies mapped out by Okorocha to destabilize Ohakim’s declaration of his 2015 governorship ambition this weekend.
Ohakim who lost to Okorocha in the last election has been fighting hard to regain his lost position. With the dismal performance of Okorocha, the song on the lips of Imo people is: Ikiri ka onyeori mna – which means Ohakim aka Ikiri, is better than a thief as symbolized in Rochas who is looting Imo blind.
Rochas Okorocha who is highly afraid of Ohakims ambition, is doing everything to scuttle such moves. A source close to Ohakims camp said the governor’s press release condemning the incident as diversionary, as Rochas the source insisted, is responsible for the act.
