Governor Emeka Ihedioha of Imo State has finally reacted to reports that a member of his committee on the Recovery of State Government Property, ‘slapped’ Uloma Nwosu, the daughter of his predecessor, Rochas Okorocha and wife of former Guber aspirant, Uche Nwosu.
KanyiDaily had reported that a member of the task force set up by Governor Ihedioha to recover stolen properties of the state government, was caught on camera slapping Uloma Okorocha while trying to recover some property.
Okorocha and the PDP Women Liberators (PWL), had demanded an apology from Governor Ihedioha on the alleged assault and harassment against Mrs. Uloma.
However, a statement signed by his Special Adviser on Media, Steve Osuji, disclosed that no appointee of the governor slapped Okorocha’s daughter. The governor’s aide said:
“We are not aware that such thing happened. We are not unruly like them.
“If they are sure of what they are saying, let them go to court. They know the right thing to do.”
Okorochas earlier alleged that, “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.”
