According to a source, “Emelumba, reportedly bought into the deal and sacked Chris Akaraonye, who they considered too weak to confront Comrade Nwadike led Executive to pave way for Enedo general services Limited to criminally take over the Multi-Million naira complex.

“He also gave them police coverage but when the police came and were shown all the processes, they distanced themselves from the matter which they considered frivolous. Hence, Emelumba, who was firing on all cylinders to actualize their ignoble plot became helpless and frustrated”.

Meanwhile, section of Imo Journalists have called on the State government to ensure that Emelumba’s name is included in the names of those involved in the land racketeering for supporting plot to sell Union’s property.
