Imo market killing: Those protesting are not Owerri people – Okorocha | Nigeria News Today. Your online Nigerian Newspaper f

Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State has described those protesting demolition of the Ekeukwu market in the state capital, which resulted to the death of a 10-year-old boy, as non-indigenes.
Some leaders from three Senatorial zones of the state had protested the demolition of the market, killing of the 10-year-old boy and other alleged atrocities of the governor on Wednesday in Abuja, calling on the state House of Assembly to move for the immediate impeachment of Okorocha.

But reacting in a statement issued by his Chief Press Secretary, sam Onwuemeodo, the governor said,

“The fact is that those behind the press conference in Abuja today (yesterday) or involved in protest over the relocation of Ekeukwu Market are not Owerri indigenes but few politicians from the state mostly of the PDP extraction who are only keen in coming back to power in the state in 2019 after Imo people had voted them out in 2011 and also voted against them in 2015.

“The Owerri indigenes are here in the state and are happy with the level of development in Owerri courtesy of Governor Rochas Okorocha.

“Afterall, the PDP governments in the state for 12 years had tried to relocate Ekeukwu Market but could not do so because they lacked the political will and they were not keen in developing the state.”

    1. I don't believe what the governor is saying . But in the first place why should someone die .Dont say it's not Owerri people . Every Nigerian has the right to stay and do business in every part of the country . What the governor just said now is part of hate speech . None imo state resident have the right to protest if things are going in the wrong direction

  2. Rochas is fraudster did u read his lips, tell me this and do that, u have used that boy and instead feeling sorry u are now throwing ur own hate speech, must I be a family of that dead boy before I protest his killing, God will judge u, make it here, u must suffer for what u have done, u re trying to politicise ur attackers thief like u, ur cu will soon full as events unfolding

  3. OMG! This man is indeed a devil, how can he even utter this from his dirty big called mouth?
    So according to your speech, as a governor, any person who is not from imo does not deserve to live, if I may ask, do you really know your duty as a governor of a state?
    Okoroausa, you are an evil.

  4. It is so shameful and disheartening that we do not have Leaders in Nigeria.
