Sam Onwuemeodo, the media aide to a former governor of Imo State, Senator Rochas Okorocha, has alleged that the Governor Hope Uzodinma’s ongoing probe of Okorocha’s administration was targeted at humiliating him.
This was contained in a statement by Onwuemeodo, in Owerri, on Thursday.
According to him, reports that a court declined his request to stop his probe by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission were untrue.
The statement reads in part, “Quickly, we want to state that the court presided over by Justice Ahmed Mohammed did not decline or refused to stop the probe of Senator Rochas Okorocha by EFCC and the Imo State Government.
“If that report was true, the court would not have again adjourned to Tuesday, July 14, 2020, when the court would decide on the orders sought by Okorocha.
“The most exciting thing that happened in the court on Wednesday, July 8, 2020, was that the judge extracted oral undertaking from the lawyer that represented the Attorney-General of the State, Mr Joseph Matthew, that the panel would not sit again during the pendency of the matter.”
