Tension enveloped Imo state on Saturday morning after some harmed hoodlums, suspected to be hired assassins, invaded the residence of the immediate past governor of Imo State, Rochas Okorocha.
Herald Nigeria gathered that the armed hoodlums attacked his country home in Ogboko, Ideato South Local Government Area of the state barely 72 hours after Okorocha left office as governor.
The hoodlums, who managed to overpower the security guards at the residence to force their way in, headed straight to Okorocha’s bedroom and ransacked everywhere but were said not to have taken any item away.
Confirming the incident, Okorocha’s media aide, Sam Onwuemedo, said that the police had begun investigation into the matter.
He said, “The police have moved in to unravel what happened. I don’t think it is proper for me to say anything about the incident in order not to jeopardise their investigation. Let us wait till they complete their work.”
The state Commissioner of Police, Rabiu Ladodo, also said, “I am aware of the development. But I am not the one handing it. The commander of Oguta is the one handing it.”
