Uzodimma Denies Arrest, Accuses Okorocha Of Planting “Evil Story”




The All Progressives Congress, APC governorship candidate in Imo State, Senator Hope Uzodimma has decried media reports about his detention saying that the reports were conceived by Governor Rochas Okorocha.

A statement issued by Declan Emelumba, director of media and special duties of his campaign organisation read thus:

“There is absolutely no iota of truth in the story trending online posted by that the APC Governorship Candidate, Sen. Hope Uzodimma was arrested yesterday by the special Presidential investigation panel for recovery of Public Property, the Hope Uzodimma Campaign Organisation has declared.”

Noting that the story was planted by Okorocha, he said:

“Okorocha has refused to come to grips with the reality that his son-in-law will not succeed him as governor and is going all out to damage APC and its governorship candidate in next year’s election just to see if he can substantiate his false claim that there can be no APC in Imo state without him.”

“If there was any arrest is it not the press department of the panel that will issue such a statement to the entire media and not just to

“It is very obvious that Okorocha and his people are behind this evil story. They have planned so much against the APC Governorship Candidate, from the phony dud-cheque issue to a non-existent non assets declaration charge. Their latest plot is this Calabar dredging contract.

“However they should know that the company handling the Calabar dredging contract is Calabar Channels Management Company in which Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA) has 60% equity shares. So if there is anybody to be arrested for anything then it is the Managing Director of NPA and not a minority partner, Niger Global, in which Sen. Uzodimma is a shareholder.”
