They are my wife’s property sealed by EFCC’ – Okorocha reacts to hidden warehouse

In a swift reaction to the news that Jasper Ndubuaku-led Imo State Committee on the Recovery of Moveable Assets, discovered a warehouse located at Aba Road which belongs to Nkechi, wife of former Governor, Rochas Okorocha, he has shared his own side of the story. 


Rochas Okorocha is accusing Emeka Ihedioha’s government of witch-hunt, over claims of uncovering a warehouse.
In a statement issued by his media aide, Sam Onwuemeodo, Okorocha accused the Imo State government of looting his wife’s properties sealed by the EFCC. 

The former Imo State Governor added that the shops were sealed by the EFCC after the state government petitioned the anti-graft agency. 

The statement read in part “This is to inform all men and women of goodwill, that barely two days after the agents of the Economic & Financial Crime Commission, EFCC, had marked the ALL – IN SHOP owned by the wife of the former governor, Dr. Mrs. Nneoma Nkechi Okorocha, located at Naze near Owerri, for investigation also following Flood of Petitions written to the Commission by the PDP government in the State, the leader and members of the government’s Committee on the “Recovery of Government Property” invaded the shop today being Friday, July 26, 2019, and looted the goods there, including the ones inside the Containers parked inside the premises of the Shop.

“We had told all those who cared to hear us that the PDP government in the State is out for witch-hunting just to intimidate Opponents, otherwise why invading and looting a Shop with furniture and baby goods, already marked for investigation by the EFCC.


“And the Containers they looted have been in the premises of the Shop before the EFCC agents came and marked the Shop for investigation last Tuesday. And they are still there before the Jasper Ndubuaku-led gang invaded the place.

The question now is, what if at the end of the day, the EFCC’s investigation establishes that this shop has no relationship with the last administration.

“Obviously, Jasper Ndubuka and his gang are not recovering any property but are on a looting spree. They were the ones who petitioned the EFCC. And EFCC came and marked the investments they had mentioned in their petitions for investigation.

Then, why going to loot the same establishments marked by EFCC for investigation? If Governor Ihedioha had asked questions and if he meant well, he would not have entrusted such sensitive task into the hands of a man like Jasper Ndubuaku.”
