There is palpable tension in Okuku Autonomous Community, Owerri West Local Government Area, Imo State, over allegations that the Commissioner for Education, Prof. Johnclif Nwadike, and the Secondary School Education Management Board (SEMB) Executive Director, Mrs. Tina Azubuike, sold eight plots of land belonging to Arah Secondary School to individuals, including a gas plant owner along Okuku Umuguma road in Owerri West Local Government Area of Imo State.

A source revealed that the community donated the land for the school and it is opposed to the sale, citing safety concerns for the students.

Residents who spoke to our correspondent, appealed that the governor, Senator Hope Uzodimma should intervene into the case and return the land to its original owners if the government no longer needs it for the school.
