Okorocha has been released – Imo Police


The Imo State Police Command has confirmed the release of former governor of the state, Rochas Okorocha.

Spokesperson for the state police command, Orlando Ikeokwu, disclosed this while speaking on a television programme in Lagos.

Ikeokwu said Okorocha was released on Sunday night after he was “invited” for “questioning” over the unsealing the Royal Spring Palm Estate linked to his wife, Nkechi.

“He was released later at night,” the PPRO said, adding, “If anybody is found culpable, definitely, he will be charged to court. If investigation proves that he (Okorocha) has committed an offence, he will be charged to court.”

Okorocha was arrested on Sunday after he was accused of forcefully unsealing the Royal Spring Palm Hotel, Owerri, which was earlier sealed by the commissioner for lands and physical planning on behalf of the Imo State Government.

The ex-governor and serving senator reportedly stormed the estate with his supporters, policemen, soldiers and personnel of Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps on Sunday morning and ordered the unsealing of the estate.
