Unknown men, on Saturday morning, ransacked the residence of the immediate past governor of Imo State, Rochas Okorocha.
This development is coming up barely 72 hours after Okorocha left office as governor.
Recounting the ordeal, a close source said the hoodlums who many suspected to be hired assassins stormed his country home in Ogboko, Ideato South Local Government Area of the state.
According to sources, the hoodlums overpowered the security guards before gaining access to Okorocha’s room.
But nothing was stolen from the house, the source said.
Sam Onwuemedo, a media aide to Okorocha, confirmed that the police had begun investigation into the matter.
“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 jeopardize their investigation.
“Let us wait till they complete their work,” he said
The State Commissioner of Police, Rabiu Ladodo, said he was aware of the incident.
“I am aware of the development. But I am not the one handing it. The commander of Oguta is the one handing it,” he affirmed.
