Former Imo state governor Rochas Okorocha has demanded an apology from a member of the Committee on Recovery of Stolen State Government Assets set up by Governor Emeka Ihedioha, for slapping his daughter.
Recall some days ago, a video surfaced of Okorocha’s daughter Uloma-Rochas Nwosu being slapped by Ihedioha’s aide, an act the former governor has now requested must be properly settled.
A statement released by Rochas Okorocha’s media aide Sam Onwuemedo, read thus;
“On Friday, July 26, 2019, a member of the Committee on Recovery of Government Property set up by Governor Emeka Ihedioha and led by Mr. Jasper Ndubuaku, slapped the daughter of the former governor of Imo State, Mrs. Uloma Rochas Okorocha, when she went to the All-In Furniture Store owned by her mother, to know why members of the committee invaded the store and began to tamper with items, including the ones inside the containers, especially when the EFCC had marked the shop for investigation also following their petitions to that effect” the statement read in part.
Reacting to the claim, Governor Ihedioha, through his Special Adviser on Media, Steve Osuji said” “We are not aware that such thing happened. This blackmail will not stop the state government from recovering movable government assets which were stolen. If they are sure of what they are saying, let them go to court. They know the right thing to do.”
