Some operatives of the Imo State police command have arrested a former governor of the state, Rochas Okorocha.

Ijeoma Igboanusi and Lasbrey Okafor-Anyanwu were also arrested along side.

Igboanusi was the deputy chief of staff (Domestics) while Okafor-Anyanwu was the Commissioner for Transportation in Okorocha’s government.

Okorocha was arrested on Sunday after unsealing Spring Palm Estate linked to his wife, Nkechi.

The ex-governor who now represents Imo West at the Senate had gone to the estate with his supporters, policemen, soldiers and personnel of National Security and Civil Defence Corps and ordered the unsealing of the estate.

Government officials had mobilized to the estate, leading to a free-for-all as many were reportedly injured while some cars were damaged.

A spokesperson for the state State Police Command, Orlando Ikeokwu, confirmed the arrest of Okorocha.

The Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Declan Emelumba, who also confirmed Okorocha’s arrest said he will be arraigned today (Monday).
