A Facebook user has lamented over the new cars and houses Governor Rochas gifted past Governors of Imo State after allegedly demolishing his own father's house. Check details of his story here!

A Facebook user who identified himself as Nkemjika Muoneke Joshua has called out out-going Governor of Imo State, Rochas Okorocha, for allegedly treating his family unfairly, yet buying exotic cars and building houses for past Governors of the state.

In the post shared on the social network, Joshua stated that the state government demolished a house his civil servant father toiled to build, six years ago.

“Exactly 6 years ago, Rochas Okorocha’s government came to my village compound and destroyed the only house my father built at the time (as a retired civil servant) alongside that of my uncles,” he said.

Joshua further shared a post by the Lagos State Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress Joe Igbokwe. In the post, Governor Rochas Okorocha is pictured presenting brand-new SUV cars and newly built houses to past Governors of Imo State.

According to the post shared:

“The land where those houses were built is currently devastated. We have since pleaded with him (the governor) to pay us compensation for our properties he destroyed in 2013, but he has failed to do so till date. We (my uncles inclusive) currently have no house in the village.

“Just today, I heard that Rochas Okorocha recently bought brand new SUV’s (supposedly Land Cruiser) and built a house for each past governor of Imo State (Late. Evans Enwerem, Late. Sam Mbakwe, Achike Udenwa, Ikedi Ohakim), while thousands of middle and low class people he destroyed their properties illegally, are left unattended to.

“I’m not against building houses for rich and Dead people, but everyone should join me to appeal to Governor Rochas Okorocha to compensate us for our properties and land he destroyed unlawfully.”
