Okorocha, Anyanwu trade words over alleged breach of gov’s convoy

| January 1, 2013 | 0 Comments

IMO State Government and Senator Chris Anyanwu have been trading words over the reported breach of Governor Rochas Okorocha’s convoy, during which Anyanwu’s pilot driver was beaten up by suspected security aides of the governor.

Their convoys reportedly clashed at Azaraegbelu, Owerri North Local Council of Imo State. Later, in a New Year statement by the Special Assistant on Media (Print) to Okorocha, Mr. Ebere Uzoukwa, the governor said he had in the spirit of New Year forgiven Anyanwu for nearly making him lose his life.

But in a statement by Anyanwu’s Special Assistant on Political Matters, Chief Obinna Ibe, which was made available to The Guardian yesterday in Owerri, the senator, who represents Imo East Senatorial District on the platform of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), said “the best gift the governor can give the good and courageous people of Imo State is to set a good example for all.

He added that this he could do “by coming clean on this small matter, telling the truth, showing contrition and moving into the New Year with a clean conscience. The governor, by his statements and New Year message of conditional forgiveness, has betrayed the fact that he personally instructed and supervised the brutalisation of innocent Imo citizens.”
