The Imo State government, has taken possession of Royal Palm Estate, a multi-billion naira estate, which is allegedly owned by the wife of the former Governor of the state, Nkechi Okorocha, in line with its 3Rs mantra of reconstruction, rehabilitation and recovery.
The estate, which is located along Akachi road in Owerri, the state capital, was earlier singled out as part of Okorocha’s property allegedly built with Imo State money.
According to the judicial commission of enquiry on recovery of lands and other related matters, the structure was certified to be reclaimed by Imo government after full-scale investigation on the authenticity of Okorocha’s ownership of the estate.
Royal Palm Estate was built and commissioned in 2018 and contains several buildings with the state of the arts facilities which led to its popular demand.
It would be recalled that the state Governor, Senator Hope Uzodinma, a couple days back, recovered the Eastern Palm University, Ogboko which the governor had claimed it’s ownership.
The University, according to reports, was renamed K. O Mbadiwe University.
Some people are of the view that the Governor may soon take on the Rochas Okorocha college of Africa in Orji alleged to have also been built with Imo money.
