The Imo State government has denied invading a guest house belonging to Senator Rochas Okorocha (APC-Imo West).
The immediate past governor of Imo State accused the Secretary to the State Government (SSG) Uche Onyeaguocha of breaking into his private guest house without a warrant.
Okorocha said Onyeaguocha chased away security men on duty, broke into the house, ransacked it and made away with documents and keys.
According to him, the latest invasion of his guest house followed a series of other calculated attacks on his property and that of his relatives.
Reacting in a statement by his media aide McDonald Enwere, the Imo State SSG, Uche Onyeaguocha, said the state only recovered the properties following the governor’s directives that all government properties in the possession of former government officials must be recovered for public use.
He said: “Okorocha had, in the twilight of his administration, built houses for himself and former governors; these houses have not been utilised, and the present governor had directed that all government properties should be recovered.
“That is one of those properties built on government land, and so it belongs to the government.
“The SSG only carried out the directives of the governor. No single document was removed from the house.”
