War over Imo gov’s convoy accident

92

From GEORGE ONYEJIUWA,Owerri.

The controversy trailing Thursday’s clash between the security aides of Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State and those of Senator Chris Anyanwu along the Owerri-Umuahia highway continued yesterday with exchange of harsh words between the warring parties. While the governor in a statement insisted that Anyanwu’s convoy broke into his with a view to kill him, the Senator who incidentally is representing the state in the National Assembly and elected on the same political platform,

All Progressive Grand Alliance, APGA as the governor accused Okorocha of telling lies by feeding the public with a false account of what happened. She narrated how the governor sat in his car watching his security aides drag out her drivers and security aides from her three car convoy to beat them and break their heads in a naked show of state power.

The governor however in a press statement signed by his media adviser, Ebere Uzoukwa said that contrary to claims by Senator Anyanwu that Governor Okorocha ordered his security details to attack her convoy, the governor narrowly escaped death after the Senator ordered her Naval security aides to open fire on the vehicle conveying the Governor, adding that, “he was quickly shielded by his security men, who whisked him away to safety”. In her own account of the incident, Anyanwu described the governor’s narration as a blatant lie.

According to her: “The governor lied. This is one case governor Rochas cannot cover up. And no amount of propaganda can turn the truth on its head. What happened was a simple case of shameful show of power….a governor visiting the governed with brutality for absolutely no reason. “My three cars were ahead of the governor. There was no indication the governor was approaching. No flags, no advance outriders. There was a hyundai bus with tinted glasses , a number of small cars and open hilux with many uniformed men. Being ahead of them on the busy Owerri- Umuahia road, it was difficult to know who was coming until the hilux passed us.

We then immediately cleared the road and stopped for them to pass. But instead of passing, five vehicles completely surrounded our three cars. Over thirty men from all sides descended on us. “First they tried to force open my car. My driver locked it. Then they went to my advance car and back up cars. Pulled out the drivers, plummeted one and pushed him into the gutter. The other one they dragged into the bush. Ten men descended on him., gashed his head and continued to pound him until I ran out of my car barefooted pleading “ don’t kill him. He is my driver. I am Senator Anyanwu. One non-uniformed man turned on me, cocked his gun at me and said he would blow me away if I didn’t back off.” She further accused the governor of ordering his security aides to disarm her own security aide. “Governor Rochas had ordered his men to disarm my police security.

They tore his uniform, ripped off his belt used it to flog his body and snatched his gun. In the struggle that ensued from that order, my men were able to snatch back their gun. “It is clear that if I had not run out to beg and shout against their ferocious brutality, they would have killed someone and come out lying to cover up their acts. But by coming out to identify myself, it was obvious that they had been caught in their act. They scampered off and immediately called a press conference to do damage control. Here are the questions to ask….

If we were ahead of the governor’s motorcade, how then was it possible to run into his motorcade, block him off, do all the things that read like children’s fiction. Ask the governor how did my driver end up in the bush with his ahead gashed. What did he do and what did he say. He was watching it all. We saw him. A statement released by the governor’s spokesman yesterday however countered Anyanwu saying danger was averted because the governor who was visibly shocked by the Senator’s show of ‘recklessness’, remained calm, while she continued to rain abuses on Okorocha after slapping his Aide Camp and Chief security Detail with her shoe.

Uzoukwa maintained that the conduct of the Senator during the encounter that attracted a siezable crowd on the highway showed that, “it was a planned action to get at the Governor and if possible eliminate him in the process”, adding “that the entire story that the Senator had fed to the media, were all lies concocted to save her face after her plans were aborted”.

He added that “the Governor is yet to fully recover from the shock of the experience and investigations are on to unravel other culprits who were also involved in the obvious plot to eliminate the Governor, who since assumption of office has remained a symbol of peace and mutual coexistence among all political and religious groups in the state”.

    • MURON, where you there to know who is lieing or not? Is not enough for you to just jump into conclusion.
      some women are nothing but a bitch

      • @engr sonnie, you know we are now living in a civilized. No man is judged right whenever he is fighting with a woman. Am very much afraid that our governor is steeping into the shoes of Ohakim.

    • Will anybody in this forum believe that sen. Anyawnu will come out in the presence of many ppl on a busy road and order her security men to shoot and kill gov rochas who has even more security men? And it is too unfortunate that two adults will come out on the and start fighting, and mr rochas, if I find out that you signed that statement from your spokesman, I will be two disapointed, I am already one disapointed in you. And to the both of you I need a job.

  1. @Azor you are not expected to respect the Governor becoz your respect and vote doesn’t count, please go and hang yourself.

    • Akuma,
      what are you talking about.You mean to endorse the macabre dance of shame as was displayed by the man who is supposed to lead by example and also act as the peoples Governor. There is no conscionable reason to justify this sordid display of naked force by a man who should give justice should ordinary citizen had behaved this way.Chris is a woman of honour and has no reason to act the way she has been accused of by overzealous security men who can not confront Kidnappers and armed robbers.The Governor should not forget that he has a wife in the house and therefore should have behaved as a man rather than displaying openly his crass jittery before a woman.Besides,It seems the Governor and his team of gang star lack wisdom and common sense.How can he accuse the Senator who was on her way home of pre meditated murder attempt on the Governor when it was he the Governor who went after the Senator.I have lost what ever respect i have for the Governor for this singular behavior of Area Boy jankara market syndrome.I am very very ashamed and highly disappointed that a state man could so crude in his public display of authority.Tufiakwa.If you could nurse this level of animousity against the senator,only God know what you will do if your opponent was a man.From every indication there is no doubts that the Governor is afraid of Chris political prowess.Even when they are of same political party.Its very shameful indeed.

      • I am saying that he os she is right , but I am trying to bring out to all of us is that we the masses are useless to politicians are they are more corrupted and can vote themselves into office. Just like you wrote, these people are nothing but fortunate touts and a tout will always be a tout no matter the office he controls.

  2. Which Way Nigeria on

    Only GOD knows the truth. But both parties have lost their dignities. Evil powers controling our Nation. Shame! shame!! shame!!!

  3. Ibos are known for arrogance, pride and ignorant display of wealth and power.
    It is only in Nigeria that Senators move in convoy of armed security men.
    I have known Senator Anyawu as a rude woman with lust for power and and authority to control men. She has no respect for men and she can slap any person serving her at any slightest provocation. Okorocha also has his own shortcomings.
    Today, Nigerian Police men are being used as housemaid, cleaners, handbag carriers and gate men cos of money. It does not happen in Europe or even in South Africa. The president of America does not move soldiers or police men standing behind him but in Nigeria, a local government chairman or 419ers move with full escort.
    Nigeria is a dead country where the president, senators, governors and even the ruled behave like vampires

  4. The youths are watching, please do not set this kind of example for them. The two full fledged adults should have known a better way to resolve such crises. But our dear Governor, please you better watch it, this is the 3rd time this year you are being accused of security recklessness. We all love you, please don’t disappoint us.

  5. “They tore his uniform, ripped off his belt used it to flog his body and snatched his gun. In the struggle that ensued from that order, my men were able to snatch back their gun.”

    This is a segment from Sen. Chris Anyanwu’s description of a senseless row between her and Gov. Okorocha of Imo State.

    This is a typical show of madness and nonsense which we talk about all the time.

    One incident described in two opposite directions by two people who claim to be adults and who claim they represent the citizenry. You can now imagine if it were an ordinary Nigeria with one of these adventures. I have said severally that what we practice here is madness and not any definable form of government. Rulers, as against leaders, unleashed to terrorize the citizenry.

    Listen to this rubbish again; “They tore his uniform, ripped off his belt used it to flog his body and snatched his gun. In the struggle that ensued from that order, my men were able to snatch back their gun.”

    “my men” indeed. Arrant nonsense. She is in a war front with her men. This is one of those uncreative people who launder about a quarter of national budget every year in the name of National Assembly.

    Why must a senator be moving about in motorcade? And where is the Governor rushing to that will make him to push every body off the road assuming that is what happened?

    I feel terrified with this show of power from people who claim to be serving us.

  6. The likes of Senator Anyanwu are disrespectful. Women are exuding a lot of unbecoming powe bc they want to make Africa to Be Europe. She should go n apologise to the govonor. From these stories likely she had put the first offensive n d gov as characteristic of him returned same. For speaking loud, he is a state commander.

  7. Some of Nigerian leaders are not humble and such has led to this show of shame by both Governor and Senator who engaged in such childish display of power show on high way.
    Governor Okorocha forgets often that is a public figure unlike, so his protocol officers must remind him time to time how Governor of a state should behave in public.
    The lady Senator should be reminded that there should be no power struggle between her and the Governor of the state who is the number one citizen of that state,Both of them should bury their heads in shame and continue to impact positively on the people that voted or rigged them to power.

  8. Udam Ochiaghandigbo on

    Shame on you, Mr. Okorocha. Of course I believe Ms. Anyanwu’s version of the account of what happened. Lets refresh everyones memory: count 1) Okorocha’s security roughed up Gov. Obi’s aide over a seat at Enugu event, count 2) Okorocha’s security operatives assaulted a gateman for not opening his gate fast enough for the foolish governor to drive in, and now count 3) Okorocha’s security, apparantly taking cues from him assaulted Senator Anyanwu’s convoy obviously for not clearing out of the way fast for the governor.

    Okorocha, remember what happened to your predecessor, Mr. Ohakim when his convoy manhandled and beat up a Reverend Father. Imo citizens ousted him. It seems to me that you are towing the path of a ONE TERM GOVERNOR!

  9. There was a similar case during Ikedi Ohakim’s regime that involved a Catholic Priest. So the security details’s job is to jump out and decapitate any body on the way as they approach? What is the use and need for convoy by the governor and the senator? Governor Rochas, you were here in the State of Maryland in the United states of america not quite long ago including the State of New Jersy, how many times did you see Governor Martins O’Marley or the New Jersy Governor in Convoy? Could you tell who the governor, senator is in the public? How many times did you notice security men pouncing on an individual and pumelling them? You people are having a field day in that shity silly place. All these because when the cats away, the mice will play. Its a rat race!

  10. the truth about this matter is that something is wrong between them before only 2 of them can tell what the problem is.they know what the are doing .don’t mind them.

  11. unjoerated onwukeme on

    Don’t know who’s saying the truth but from the
    above narration, its obvious governor Rochas
    did the assault on Senator Anyanwu’s convoy!
    Rochas should be careful, we all queued and
    v oted for against all odds so he shouldn’t toll
    the line of his predecessor!
    And he shouldn’t take the love Imolites have
    for him for granted!
    2015 is around the corner!

  12. Iam the happiest man on earth today,because it can happens to any-one,the cathloic used convey issues aganist Ohakim in 2011 election,now what have they the to say about the( GANG- RAPE) against a woman by BLOODY ROCHAS and his GANGS.

  13. This Chris Anyanwu of a Senator, is she a man or a woman? Christiana or Christopher of whatever you calls yourself, please allow the Governor to complete his tenure peacefully,maybe after Okorocha,you may come in and contest to win and rule Imo state….Mbaise women have no respect for men at all…You Owerri/Mbaise zone are not happy at all that Orlu Zurume to the core…..Thank God that you are not a reverend father like the case of Ohakim…A bloody sinner like you if at all you are not a political harlot in Abuja…we knows all you Abuja Owerri/Mbaise women…Fuck..

    • Mr dom, I am from mbaise and I know that mbaise women are not what you said they are, I know too that many ppl from mbaise and owerri zone voted for gov rochas and you are here calling them FOOLS though I can discern from your coment here that brains is not one of your strong points, I will still agree that truth sometimes comes out of the mouth of the simple minded ppl like you. As more ppl from mbaise and owerri zone read your posts and that of ppl like you, they will come to realise the type of ppl they are dealing with.
      What inteligent people do in this type of situetion is listen to the two parties, then draw conclutions, but you went and turned it into an mbaise issue. I don’t know where you come from but I think you are a huge disappointment to your parents and to your ppl.

    • Dom M or do u call yourself Dog M. It is obvious that anybody who reads this senseless comment you made here will qualify you with nothing but Dog M. Imolites saw what Ohakim did when he was the governor of the state and all hands were on deck and we voted him out. What we were looking for was nothing but the governor who will steer the affairs of the state to the right direction for the betterment of imolites. Mbaise in particular and Owerri zone in general voted massively for Okorocha irrespective of the zone he came from and the best way to say ‘thank u’ is to beat our daughter’s convoy on our own soil. You have made us to know that you are Okorocha’s brother. Please tell your governor brother to kill Christ and bring her corpse home to us. No man is ever innocent whenever it is heard that he is fighting a woman. Tell your brother not to forget what happened to IKIRI lest he steps into his shoes. Please tell your brother that we are now in dry season and that he should come and repare the roads we were managing before he came in and act like the messiah only to render them non motorable, otherwise he should watch out for owerri zone.

    • @Dog M, Mbaise women are not harlots as you claimed. Mbaise men love their women because they are respectful and they make the best homes around. Our men hardly beat their women. If Okorocha is looking for a woman to beat, he should start with his wife. Okorocha should apologize to Owerri zone for this embarrassment OR………………Let me reserve my comment.

  14. @ don m: from ur statement u talked like a child . I mean 2 years kid, that some of our youths joined kidnapping does it make u a kidnapper or are u one?. That some mbaise women does not respect men does not mean that all are same. Before u insult people, look out in ur kindred then to ur town before u do so. Am not from imo am from Anambra so then , the problem we have is that we dont respect ourselves talk more of others . Two people can never be mad at the same time either the governor is mad or the senator but the truth is that politicians are 99.99% liers. So i wil not believe either of them but they are bunch of idiots for fighting in the public, thereby showing people that they are touts.

  15. Onuoha success on

    But rocharls u fuckup by orderlin ur aids to beat a police man aids to snator, asume is america u wil face law… Pls my gud govnor pls stop beatin of pple wit power, cos is a human being u beat remeber power dosnt last,’governor savd citzens lyf nt to kil them, pls amend.

  17. without bias,okorocha has disapointed me a great deal,this is not the first time.i withdraw my support and likeness for him.he is unfit to be a governor.He can never be president of Nigeria.He is not a leader.

  18. Both of them should settle their differences and let peace reign in Imo state.Sen Anyawu should not distract our Governor pls.This is how Abuja based politicians normally behave against their state Govs.Check out you will see that right from 1999 till date in almost all the state of the federation the ministers,senators,rep members who wants to control the state structure always have serious misunderstanding with the Governors.Chris should mind her business as a senator and should not distract a gov who has a lot of work to do.After all what is her contribution to her immediate constituency let alone Imo state.All these PDP members in the garment of APGA.May be she is hustling to contest in 2015 and see Rochas as the only obstacle.These two people have not really said the truth of what transpired.How will she just finish visiting the Gov and the next thing is fighting.we strongly demand for the truth.

  19. Gov Okorocha shame on you. we thought you were a gift to ndi imo but now ohakim is far better than you. all the things you accused ohakim of doing, you now do and even worse. you fought in enugu at Alex Ekwueme’s 80th birthday, now you are fighting a senator elected in the same APGA with you in imo state. if it was PDP senator you would have quickly said it was opposition party. if it was Senator Hope Uzodimma would you have ordered your security to drag the driver driving him to be beaten??? You would have seen something on the spot. Bcos you saw it is a woman. now you accuse a senator of planning to kill you. LIAR! Kill you for what? Gov Okorocha wouldn’t you have stopped the fight when you discovered it was your senator? Go and learn how to handle issues, you are still a baby in managing issues

  20. HUMAN BEINGS COVER THEMSELVES WITH POLITICAL MASK WHEN THEY COME TO BEG FOR VOTES BUT IMMEDIATELY POWER THE GOVERMENT IS ON THEIR SHOULDER, YOU SEE THEM PLAYING A DIFFERENT. TRULY, OKOROCHA PUT HIMSELF ON THE POLITICAL DOMAIN AS A MAN OF HUMANE QUALITY, A NATIONAL FIGURE AND SHOULD BE SEEN AS SUCH. BUT TRULY, HE IS PLAYING A HITLER TUNE THESE DAYS.. PLEASE LET THOSE WHO ARE CLOSE TO HIM… SEAT HIM DOWN AND FEED HIM WITH GOOD GOVERNANCE QUALITIES

  21. Pls.my Sen.whenever u come into d state reg.ur arrivl wit d Chief security of d state~d Gov.he’s res’ble 4ur sec.obey d no siren order&every other measures taken by d Gov.2ensure security of lives&property in d state.u’re 2review,revoke&enact laws.dat doesn’t mean dat u’re above d law.

  22. We should blame these overzeleous security attachees.
    Okorocha is decent enough for this type of naked dance in the market squire.

  23. Okorocha is a stupid man who think every thing lay on power? How could his convoy overtake d senators convoy? May be he think dat he wil remain there for ever he should thank his stars dat nothing happened to senator christiana anyanwu.

  24. To me there’s more to this than meet the eyes. How can the governor accused his senator for trying to kill him.his doing all this because she’s a woman. Will he try this with a male senator? He’ll no.

  25. Senator anyanwu is a mother fucker liar she like powe too much, I wish they broke her two tiny legs and punch her fucking face. Yeye old woman.

  26. LET THE WHOLE NIGERIA AND THE WHOLE WORLD KNOW THAT THESE TWO COMBATANTS THAT BELONG TO THE SAME PARTY ARE THE CAUSE OF SHAME TO US IN THE NIGER DELTA REGION. I AM FROM NIGER DELTA AND I AM ASHAMED OF WHAT THE SECURITY MEN OF THE GOVERNOR DID. I AM EVEN MORE ASHAMED OF THE CLAIM OF UZOUKWA THGAT THE SENATOR WANTED TO KILL THE GOVERNOR. NOBODY IN THIS WORLD WHO HAS READ THE WHOLE STORY WILL BELIEVE THGIS NONSENSE. WE IN OUR STATE HOLD CHRIS ANYANWU IN HIGH ESTEEM AND PERSONALLY I CAN SWEAR THAT SHE DID NOT AND WILL NOT THINK EVIL AGAINST THE GOVERNOR. MY DEAR SON(GOVERNOR) LISTEN TO THIS AND MAKE A JUDGEMENT. IF A MAN WENT TO ONE MARKET AND FOUGHT, WENT TO ANOTHER MARKET AND FOUGHT AND THE THIRD MARKET AND FOUGHT, WHO IS GUILTY, THE MARKET OR THE MAN? THERE ARE THREE INCIDENTS RECENTLY THAT HAS SHAPED THE OPINION OF MANY IN THIS COUNTRY ABOUT YOUR SECURITY MEN. IN ANAMBRA, IT WAS YOUR SECURITY MEN WHO DRAGGED YOU INTO MUD, AT THE GOVERNMENT HOUSE OWERRI, IT WAS YOUR SECURITY MEN WHO DRAGGED YOU INTO MUD. NOW YOUR SECURITY MEN HAVE AGAIN DRAGGED YOU INTO MUD. WHY CAN YOU NOT DO SOMETHING ABOUT THIS. YOU KNOW YOU ARE A GOVERNOR OF A STATE AND THEREFORE SERVANT OF THE PEOPLE AS IN OTHER ORDERED SOCIETY, YOU SHOULD SHOW DEEP HUMILITY AND CALL YOUR SECURITY MEN TO ORDER. THE ACTIONS OF YOUR SECURITY MEN CAN COST YOU A LOT OF THINGS IF YOU DO NOT DO SOMETHGING ABOUT THIS.SHOW OF BRUTAL FORCE CAN DO NOTHING GOOD IN THE LONG RUN BUT IN THE SHORT RUN, IT WILL APPEAR AS IF IT IS WINNING. YOUR PREDICESSOR HAD SIMILAR PROBLEMS WITH A REV. FATHER AND HE PAID DEARLY FOR IT. THE PEOPLE IN YOUR STATE LIKE YOU AND WE IN THE RIVERS STATE LIKE YOU. BUT THESE INCIDENTS ARE CAUSING US TO BE CONFUSED, TO CONTINUE OR DISCONTINUE TO LIKE YOU. INDULGE IN INWARD THINKING AND DO SOMETHING ABOUT YOUR SECURITY MEN. PLEASE DO NOT LOOSE YOUR POPULARITY BECAUSE OF YOUR SECURITY MEN. ALSO SHOW MATURITY AND HUMILITY WHEN A SITUATION LIKE THIS ARISES. SON, LISTEN TO ME AND TO THE VOICE OF MANY WHO ARE NOW SHOUTING.A WORD IS A ENOUGH FOR THE WISE. MERRY XMAS IN AREAS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR IN ADVANCE. CHECK YOUR SECURITY MEN PLEASE.

  27. I suspect, its an intra-party friction. Rochas and Christy must be belonging to opposite sides of the current apga factions. Still, let them be civil. I dont believe either of their stories. They are all mixed with lies.

  28. Pls next time u guys come in contact with each other…..pls kill urself, the world would be a better place without Naija politicians

  29. Chief Ebere G.C. Ekpendu on

    It is sad, very sad that things like this happen in Ibo land. It is even unfortunate that the Ibos don’t even know their common enemy which is themselves. Everywhere in Ibo land, there is one form of crime or the other. The so called leaders, from LGA to ministers, not jumping any one of them in governance are not ashemed of their actions and inactions. Let us review our status today! We faught the war against the west and north. Why did we fail? Because we never believed in ourselves. All our neighbours surrounding us, rivers, cross, akwa delta bayelsa benue, kogi, all of them hate us, we don’t even think of how to mend fences with them. We carry ourselves, shoulder high, intimidating people here and there. Our Youths has no known job, after graduating from schools, yet they are the easy prey for crime. They are being killed everyday for commiting one crime or the other, crimes that they did not originate, rather our so called leaders used and dump them.
    We talk of soverignity and Biafara! Is it possible that we can be an island? Go to the west, the Yorubas are lying in waite, waiting for us to start problem then they will cash in on it. Have we heard of Kidnapping, armed robbery and killings in the west the way it is here? What has OPC been doing since 1999 to date? What is MASOP doing? Is their activities comparable? The activities of Ohanaeze and Arewa Consultative Forum and Afanifere! Are they the same? In all amount of honesty, the so called leaders have faild us.
    Why should Anynwu not have respect for the governor of her state? As she is on brake, is it right that she meets with her state governor as to rob minds? Under normal circumstances, it is the governor that suppose to give her security apparatus anytime she is home – because the governor is the chief security officer of the state. Why should she expose herself to the men carrying gun?
    As for the governor, if you are the people’s governor as you claim, why allowing your security men treat your subject in such disdain? I had hope that the governor is more expossed and should have been one among the lots of the ibos who would have been in the fore-front in bringing all and sundry in Ibo Land together!
    You all should stop feeding the public with lies. Tell us the truth so that your followers will emulate your good vitures.

  30. Okey Umez, Or what do you call yourself. I’ll not want you to use this opportunity to insult the ibos.

    There’s freedom of speach and you can open your unwashed mounth as wide as you like but don’t insult the Ibos, you little cocroach.

    Okorocha and Chris anyanwu are the people concerned and not the Ibos and both of them are political halorts and can not offer the Ibos anything good, So let the Ibos be and stop that your insult on Ibos.

  31. Is this not the same man who said some weeks ago that Igbos are not united . My question to Okorochja is, could this be the way he wants to unite the igbos that are not united according to him.
    Somehow one will continue to admire the Yoruba and the Hausas, than this bunch of crooks in the South east who don’t know what they want, the Igbo leaders are so afraid at fighting their enemies, but once is fighting one of their own leave it for an igbo man, they do it very well.
    My advise join BILIE and listen to radio Biafra

  32. These two people should leave governace immdiatly they don’t have qualities of a leader and will live no lagacy. Haba Rochas and Anyawu una drink Alcohol?

  33. Idu Springfield. on

    I want to join opinion with those who have seen through the facade of lies in both of these camps. When a police man’s belt is snatched his trosers will fall ; how can he then snatch back his gun? This is fiction. On the other hand a convoy in front or ahead cannot run into the governor’s convoy. That is another fiction.

    We have not been told the truth. The spokepersons don’t know the truth. The truth is only known to Okorocha, Anyanwu, and God Almighty. Let these two fools go and sort themselves out in private.

  34. Okorocha! Okorocha!! Okorocha!!!, how many times did I call you. I have been your fan, but that is as long as you continue to do what is good. Remember what happened to your friend Ohakim. Power still reside with the people. Please don’t rubbish your name or allow anybody to rubbish it for you.

  35. Well I for one reason will not come to conclusion, but I will remind every Imolites that a lot of plot and hired politicians from out side PDP is strongly working to destroy Gov Owele Rochas Okorocha at all cost, come to look at this critical stories of Senator Anyanwu on how security agents attached to her was manhandle, this is her story (They tore his uniform, ripped off his belt used it to flog his body and snatched his gun. In the struggle that ensued from that order, my men were able to snatch back their gun.) I wonder how few security attached to her will be able to over power those other security attached to Governor that out numbered hers, I will point out here that no one is above the law, a sitting Governor must be respected irrespective of who he/ her is or where they come from, if the law of the state says no siren will be allowed in the state, why will one of the law makers go on siren ? what is she looking for ? isn’t it trouble ? take a good look at this other story of hers, (There was no indication the governor was approaching. No flags, no advance outriders. There was a hyundai bus with tinted glasses , a number of small cars and open hilux with many uniformed men. Being ahead of them on the busy Owerri- Umuahia road, it was difficult to know who was coming ) which shows that the Governor him self is not even going on siren.
    Please my people, Pragmatism and not sentiments brings progress, we must respect and obey the chief Executives order for he is the Commander in Chief of the State.
    The executive Governor Owele Rochas Okorocha must as well respect the laws of the state.
    Wishing all Imolites the best and happy new year in advance .

  36. @ desmond Harry,god bless u for uprightness,u know the truth,Lawless fellow like okorocha,Chris made u governor,it is no more commisioner for information who feed the public with false news,now Is uzokwa,special adviser,there no way for u guys again…the chief security of the state okorocha would have shot by the security aides of senator,lie lie….ur governor was even lucky nothing happened to Mbaise born senator…power crazy……comfusinist like okorocha…

  37. WHATEVER IT IS, WE MUST KNOW THAT NIGERIA IS TOO BAD IN SECURITY THIS TIME AND THIS IS THE EXECUTIVE GOVERNOR OF OUR STATE, A LOT IS GOING ON IN NIGERIA OF TODAY, THE GOVERNOR I BELIEVE MUST HAVE FOUND HIMSELF IN A VERY SHOCK AND SCARY SITUATION AT THAT POINT IN TIME… THE SECURITY OF THE GOVERNOR AS THE COUNTRY IS FOR NOW SHOULD NOT TAKE ANY CHANCES IN PROTECTING THE GOVERNOR.. AND THERE IS NO WAY THE GOVERNOR SHOULD BE ALLOWED TO COME OUT OF THE CAR TO ASK QUESTIONS BECAUSE ANYTHING CAN HAPPEN AND THE SECURITY WILL BE HELD RESPONSIBLE…SINCE THEY ARE PARTNERS IN POLITICS IN THE STATE AND SINCE THE SENATOR HAS COME DOWN AND TALK TO THE SECURITY WHY DIDN’T SHE TRY TO APPROACH THE GOVERNOR CLOSELY BY HERSELF MAYBE THE GOVERNOR WOULD HAVE BEEN LESS AFRAID OF THE SITUATION… NO ONE SHOULD BLAME THE GOVERNOR BECAUSE IF IN ANY CASE HE WAS KILLED ..ALL OF US WILL BE SHOUTING ON HIS SECURITY AS THE FIRST SUSPECT…IF HE WAS DISPLAYING SHOW OF POWER ..I THINK HE WOULD HAVE BEEN MOVING LIKE OHAKIM WHERE BY ALL ROADS ARE CLEARED.. IN THIS CASE THE GOVERNOR WAS TRAVELING IN A LOW PROFILE WAY LIKE EVERY OTHER CITIZENS OF THE STATE AGAIN HIS SECURITY HAS TO BE AT A ALERT …THIS SHOULDN’T BE A NEWSPAPER ATTACK AND MY BROTHERS AND COMMENTATORS LETS ALWAYS THINK AND REASON POSITIVELY.. HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL.

  38. there is no amount of insult that will make me to hate rochas…..but all i want to advice him is this….stop constructing more roads in the already developed owerri…what about all these rural areas surrounding it?

  39. Okorocha again! Need for self-examination of your personality. Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Power is temporary. Security details need to imbibe culture of decency and drop their animalistic behavior . You can be unnecessarily over zealous in dealing with perceived rivals of your principals. Politicians know how to settle their scores after using and dumping you. There is however a minimum standard of behavior expected from public office holders. No matter who was at fault Okorocha did not behave like a true leader. How do we differentiate him from heads of touts if you sat down to watch your boys dehumanized people in this era. Haba, we are not in banana republic. Please apologize to your people and try to do a good job on your battered image. Ethics and etiquette go together with humility. Remember how many governors have faced calamity in the recent times? A word is enough for the wise. The hand of God is very long o, He can deal with anyone anytime anyhow anywhere without explanation or apology.

  40. I think what happened was because Our Governor does not share money like former Governors to these senators and honorable members of Imo State, that is why all of them are attacking him, do not be surprised. Despite that I still have confidence in my Governor until he disappoints. Right now he is still the peoples Governor no matter what. Christ Anyanwu as a Senator has never sponsored any bill that affects the common man in Imo State. Amnesty international is accusing Nigeria the worst corrupt country in the world, whereas somebody like so called senator Christ Anyanwu is there, cannot sponsor a death sentence bill against corrupt government or private officials who corrupt enrich himself or herself, yet she is there fighting the people’s Governor. That is bad for her.

  41. This two people rochas & christy are among people causing division in APGA.
    Amaron ife mere APGA jiri wee n’meri imo maka kemgbe APGA meri n’imo ka nsogbu fa bido.
    Achorom Peter Obi na Victor Umeh gbasi mgbo ike ifu na fa chupu ndi nsogbu a rochas na christy n’ime APGA.
    APGA bu nke Anambra
    Anambra bu nke APGA

  42. I don’t know why some people are not wise enough. This age of Information Communication Technology (ICT). Politicians are all lairs. This should have being recorded. There are many device you can use to record this incident with the accuse knowing. There are pen, wrist watch, eye glases, buttons in the dress/shirt thst can record things like this. I don’t who is saying the truth or not. Politicians can do any thing and get away with it. But if cut in hidden camera I will come out to move motion for his impeachment. I rest my case. People are watching, God is watching too. Is only noble men/Women will lead the Igbo race. God bless you all. Our sister please find it in your heart to forgive him; brother if at all you did something like that stop it. If I saw the crisp of any wrong from you…I will withdraw my respect from you.

  43. I will not comment on the senseless and disgraceful conduct/display of Gov Okorocha and his Senator opponent. Rather I will want to comment on the greenhorns and compound fools of the two escorts. How much are they giving them (escort) that will make you (escorts) stake your lives. parasite politicians Whatever you are given to you is your (escorts) entitlements. This has being catered for in the state budget which I know for sure that you must have been short changed and paltry is what you are given and still want kill yourself for. So no good is done to you by both Okorocha and his Opponent Senator. For instance, if one of you is shot dead, do you think Okorocha and the Senator will stop attending to state functions? of course the answer is capital NO. After 2 minutes silence prayer, you are forever forgoten. So please security agents, think twice before you dicey your precious life for ungrateful politicians you are guiding. Has anyone of you visited pension board before and see how Next of Kins are subjected to beggers because they want to claim what is belong to them. Wife of some deceased personnel were turned to sex machine before their rights were given to them. So thinkof your children and families.

  44. I knw dat Okorocha will display his arrogance nd brutality which he is knwn 4. No wonder he is clamourin 4 state police so dat he can unleash his brutality on us

  45. @ Chief Ebere, No State, No tribe or race hates the Ibos rather you hate urselves, instead of being ashame of ur Governor & Senator u are initiating civil war. Don’t always go negative pls, for God sake ur leaders are shameless

  46. Prostitute plus vampire, you both are fooling your selves, when you select a protitute and an ocultic man as your leader, they fight like chickens, dance like dogs, eat like pigs and sing like parrots

  47. That old woman is stupid and arrogant,she should go and thank God,she would have been shot at close range for daring into a convoy,let the fool try a Military convoy,her body would been cooling off in the Morgue by now

  48. Rochas again? Is it not d same rochas who turn himself to boxer with Peter Obi’s aids at Ekwueme’s birthday. Is like we voted vampier to office. God forbid.

  49. If you ask me o, I would think it is Rochas that is telling lies. A 3-car convoy of a woman is not enough to hatch any elimination plot against a state governor.

  50. security personnel that is meant for the masses was has been converted to your personal militias and the pages of newspapers you bandits wants u to take sides
    Only fools will do that. where in the civilized world does a senator travel with military security chasing citizens to their graves and where else in the world that a governor travels with the whole police meant for the whole state

  51. Although its difficult to believe on anything coming out of Nigeria, I am inclined to believe Chris Anyawu this time around because there is no way she could order her security to attack the governor’s convoy. Mr. governor should tell Imo citizens the truth of what happened.

  52. JOHN IBU NWAFO IGBO, SAKA EWU KA IBU. WHICH CAN GOVERNOR IS THIS PERSON THAT HE CAN’T HAVE PATIENCE FOR A WOMAN KNOWING THAT WOMEN ARE WEAKER VESSELS. NOW WE DON’T KNOW WHO IS TELLING US TRUE OR LIE, PLEASE LEAD US WELL.

  53. SO UNFORTUNATE.THE GOV.EXIBITED HIGH LEVEL OF INDISCIPLINE N RECKLESSNESS.A GENTLEMAN DOES NOT FIGHT A WOMAN NO MATER THE CIRCUMSTANCE.ON CITING CHRIS ANYANWU HE SHOULD HAVE CALLED HIS BOYS TO ORDER IMMEDIATELY.I THINK HE OWES CHRIS N THE ENTIRE IMOLITES/ HIS NUMEROUSFANS APOLOGY FOR THIS SERIAL SHOW OF BRUTE FORCE IN THE IN THE PUBLIC.VERY DISAPOINTING!

  54. I am from Orlu mentioned by the fool who posted earlier (Dom M). I think the “boy” is a fool and lacks any intellectual prowess. I am ashamed he claimed he is from my area. Pls I apologize on his behalf. Apologies, Mbaise and Owerri zone. The boy is on his own>

  55. Adindu Emmanuel on

    4rm all indication and the statement of d governor aid uzokwu, d governor was just trying to flex his powers and dat is uncivilized. The senator wnt and her aids wnt respect u 2ru violence. Pls take precautions
