Governor of Imo state, Rochas Okorocha on Sunday, May 6, ordered the arrest and arraignment of the committee members sent to monitor the All Progressives Congress (APC) ward congresses on Saturday, May 5.
Daily Trust reports that Okorocha took the action, despite the state chairman of the party, Hilary Eke and the state organising secretary, Clement Chijioke Anozie, rating the exercise as successful in all the 305 wards in the 27 LGAs of the state.
According to a statement signed by his chief press secretary, Sam Onwuemeodo, the governor also charged the police to set all machinery in motion for the arrest and prosecution of the man at the centre of the ugly incident.
Okorocha also expressed regret over the role of Senator Osita Izunaso, whom he said was not able to separate his local and personal political interests from his official responsibilities.
The governor said the way he managed the situation saved the state from “a very big crisis” it would have been thrown into.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had reported that Okorocha urged the people of the state to close ranks irrespective of political differences and unite for a better state that children yet unborn can be proud of.
The governor made this known in a one-month long activity to commemorate the celebration of the creation of the state 42 years ago.
It was learnt that the event took place at the government house chapel in Owerri the state capital south-east Nigeria.
