“Anywhere you see a high level of insecurity or crime, look beneath it there is a high level of poverty,” Okorocha said.
Legit.ng earlier reported that Okorocha said he was eagerly waiting for an opportunity to meet with the national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Adams Oshiomhole him in person to ask him what went wrong between the two of them.
He said: "One day, the opportunity may occur that I might hear from Adams what really went wrong because till today I am very much confused as to what went wrong.
“I have tried to make an excuse for him that probably somebody must have gossiped or do something that he believed. Or alternatively, it must be a search for political power or relevance or it would have been who he is."
