Don't take my calmness for granted - Rochas Okorocha warns Gov Uzodinma

Senator Rochas Okorocha has warned Imo state governor, Hope Uzodinma, not to take his calmness for granted.

He made this statement while addressing his supporters on Monday, February 22, 2021.

Earlier reports indicate that Senator Okorocha and some of the state government officials on Sunday, February 21, clashed after he reopened the Royal Palm Hotel and Apartment owned by his wife, Nkechi, that was sealed by the state government.

With orders from the state government, Okorocha was arrested by the state police command.

Speaking to his supporters, Okorocha also called for the arrest of Governor Hope Uzodinma’s aide on special duties, Chinasa Nwaneri. According to him, Nwaneri led the thugs that attacked him and his entourage.

''I have told everybody that I am a man of peace but Hope Uzodinma must never take my calmness and my peaceful disposition for granted. Enough is Enough. I governed this Imo state for 8 years. There was no record of me arresting anybody. I was the most abused governor. People abused me but I never in any way or any day arrested a man,'' he said.
