A statement issued by the Personal Assistant to Okorocha, Dr. Ebere Nzewuji, read that the thugs were seen in a trending video holding Nwosu hostage while claiming to have been given special order to seize her vehicle.

Addressing journalists in Abuja over the weekend, Nzewuji stated that the incident threw people of the area into panic as residents scampered for dear lives.

He said, “You will recollect that few days ago, members said to be from the Imo State recovery team went to her shop, looted things and said they were government property.

“And remember, that they went again to the former first lady’s shop and carted away some containers.

“These were gift items and souvenirs that the former first lady gives out to first ladies and dignitaries on her annual August meeting including items that were sold by her in her furniture shop.

“These things happening in Imo State is very serious. It will lead to a total breakdown of law and order in the state if care is not taken.

“We have reported to the police, even from the last incident and we don’t think any serious action has been taken so far.

“So, we are calling on the authorities to do something about it before there is a breakdown of law and order.”

Okorocha and his successor, Governor Emeka Ihedioha, have been at loggerheads even before the former Deputy Speaker of Nigeria’s House of Representatives took over Imo on 29 May, 2019.
