Rochas Okorocha's special adviser on media, Sam Onwuemeodo, has cried out over an alleged plan by the Hope Uzodinma-led administration to demolish his house.

Onwuemeodo told Punch on Thursday, March 25, that the plot of the Imo state government is to bring down other buildings close to his own so that it will not look like a witch-hunt.

The former aide of the erstwhile governor said his problem with Governor Uzodinma is linked with the political affiliation he has with Okorocha, adding that his principal's successor has nothing else against him other than this.

He revealed:

“They have marked the house where I have been living with my family for demolition. As of now, nobody has told me the reason for marking my house for demolition.
“On Friday, March 19, 2021, someone called and told me to be very careful, that the government has decided to demolish my house. That by Tuesday, March 23, 2021, my house would be marked for demolition. And to avoid making it look personal, they would also mark other houses around my own."

Meanwhile, Okorocha has been invited for questioning by the police in Imo. The invitation was given by the police commissioner for the state, Nasiru Mohammed.
