‘Imo Becoming Banana Republic’ — Okorocha 

Rochas Okorocha, senator representing Imo west, has accused Hope Uzodimma, governor of the state, of ordering the arrest of Uche Nwosu.

On Sunday, Uche Nwosu, former governorship candidate of Action Alliance (AA) and son-in-law of Okorocha, was arrested during a church service in Imo.

Although Nwosu was released from custody hours after he was picked up, the circumstances of who ordered his arrest are still unclear.

Over the past months, Okorocha and his successor, Uzodimma, have been at loggerheads.

While condemning the arrest, Okorocha, senator representing Imo west, had said the arrest of Nwosu was “like a kidnap”.

Speaking further on Tuesday in an interview with Channels Television, Okorocha said his son-in-law’s arrest has “unravelled” the “mystery” behind unknown gunmen in Imo.

“What is happening in Imo state is too serious that Imo state looks like it is becoming a Banana Republic where there is complete lawlessness, where people live in fear and not sure of what happens the next day,” he said.

“No day that passes without somebody being killed and people being harassed and it seems everybody is living in fear and nobody can speak out.

“It appears to most people unfortunately, as if though the happenings in Imo state have some kind of backing from Abuja and that is what I could figure out, and there seems to be enmity between the people here and the presumed federal government just because of communication gap”.
