SUBJECT: THE INVASION & LOOTING OF, ALL-IN SHOP, OWNED BY DR. MRS. NNEOMA NKECHI OKOROCHA BY LEADERS & MEMBERS OF MR. JASPER NDUBUAKU-LED COMMITTEE ON “RECOVERY OF GOVERNMENT PROPERTY” SET UP BY GOVERNOR EMEKA IHEDIOHA, TWO DAYS AFTER THE AGENTS OF EFCC HAD MARKED THE SHOP FOR INVESTIGATION.

This is to inform all men and women of goodwill, that barely two days after the agents of the Economic & Financial Crime Commission, EFCC, had marked the ALL – IN SHOP, owned by the wife of the former governor, Dr. Mrs. Nneoma Nkechi Okorocha located at Naze near Owerri, for investigation also following Flood of Petitions written to the Commission by PDP government in the State, the leader and members of the government’s Committee on the “Recovery of Government Property” invaded the shop today being Friday, July 26, 2019, and looted the goods there, including the ones inside the Containers’ parked inside the premises of the Shop.

We had told all those who cared to hear us that the PDP government in the State is out for witch-hunting just to intimidate Opponents, otherwise why invading and looting a Shop with furniture and baby goods, already marked for investigation by the EFCC.

And the Containers they looted have been in the premises of the Shop before the EFCC agents came and marked the Shop for investigation last Tuesday. And they are still there before the Jasper Ndubuaku-led gang invaded the place. The question now is, what if at the end of the day, the EFCC’s investigation establishes that this shop has no relationship with the last administration.

Obviously, Jasper Ndubuka and his gang are not recovering any property but are on looting spree. They were the ones who petitioned to EFCC. And EFCC came and marked the investments they had mentioned in their petitions for investigation. Then, why going to loot the same establishments marked by EFCC for investigation? If Governor Ihedioha had asked question and if he meant well, he would not have entrusted such sensitive task into the hands of a man like Jasper Ndubuaku.

Nigerians should watch closely the brigandage going on in Imo. Leaders and members of the so-called Government’s Property Recovery Committee are just having the licence to loot with the protection of the State Government. Otherwise, why won’t they allow the EFCC to conclude their investigation. Governor Ihedioha has obviously lost control.

We have been shouting for the world to hear our voice. Aside their inviting the EFCC, we have asked them to publish whatever they have against Rochas Okorocha and the family or anybody that served in the Rescue Mission government but they have not been forthcoming. The implication of all these is that, where restraint is not applied and the governor cannot control the recklessness, self help may be the last resort. And nobody should be blamed.

It should also be noted that before embarking on these reckless actions the PDP government had hosted selected media Chieftains from Lagos and Abuja and known bloggers too, to help them cover their excesses and also their falsehood.

Indeed, the patience of Opponents in the State is getting exhausted and nobody can predict what will come out from this unfortunate situation. They were the ones who wrote Petitions to EFCC. The Commission marked the Shops and Colleges they listed for investigation, why invading and looting the same establishments?
