The Imo State Government on Sunday told a former Governor of the state, Rochas Okorocha, that he was only raising false claims over the arrest of his son-in-law, Uche Nwosu.
The State Government said this through the Commissioner for information and Strategy, Declan Emelumba, on Sunday.
The Commissioner, who briefed newsmen after the arrest of Nwosu and the alarm raised by Okorocha that the Imo State Governor, Hope Uzodinma, was after him and his family, said Okorocha and his son-in-law were not “above the law.”
Emelumba urged Okorocha to allow the police who arrested Nwosu to “do their job”.
He said: “Okorocha is raising a false alarm.
“He is panicking because he looted the wealth of the people of Imo State.
“This is a man who looted the commonwealth of the people of Imo State.
“Neither he nor his son-in-law is above the law.
“He should allow the police to do their job.
“Okorocha should know that police have the right to arrest anybody.
“This is a man who converted a university built with Imo people’s money to personnel use, but this government has recovered it for Imo people.”
