BREAKING: Warehouse Where Okorocha & Family Keep Looted Properties Uncovered By Imo Govt. [PHOTOS]

A warehouse where former Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha, and family allegedly kept looted properties has been uncovered by the government of the state.

The discovery is as a result of the work done by the Jasper Ndubuaku-led Imo State Committee on the Recovery of Moveable Assets belonging to the State Government.

Acting on a tip off, the team discovered a massive warehouse Friday afternoon.

The facility, located along Aba Road, is alleged to belong to Nkechi, wife of former Governor, Rochas Okorocha.

Okorocha is now the senator representing Imo West Senatorial district.

Reports claim that it took spirited intervention to stop the youths from setting the entire warehouse ablaze.

The discovery of the warehouse follows the sealing off of an estate also allegedly owned by Nkechi.

The property is located in the Akachi area of Owerri, the state capital.

The blocks of flat and bungalow were allegedly built with state funds and proceeds of corruption.

Recall that EFCC had on Wednesday confirmed the seizure of assets and properties link to Okorocha, his wife, daughter as well as associates including son-in-law, Uche Nwosu, who served as his Chief of Staff.

A statement by the committee’s spokesman, Tony Orilade said “the marking of the properties which is a fall-out of our painstaking investigation, is as a result of the failure of the suspects to honour the Commission’s invitation for questioning on the propriety of their acquisition”.
