The Nigerian Police have arrested former Governor of Imo state, Senator Rochas Okorocha for allegedly attacking them while trying to reclaim his sealed property.

Oriental Times gathered that an order from above has instructed that the police should parade Senator Okorocha like a common criminal on Monday.

Okorocha’s Media Aide said his Boss whereabouts is still unknown after he was attacked by gunmen today.

“Yes, he was attacked today by gunmen. The details is still sketchy but I learnt that his Aide that followed him was shot”.

“Senator Okorocha’s whereabouts is also unknown following the attack,” he told our correspondent on telephone.

It was earlier reported that an Aide to Senator Rochas Okorocha was shot by Governor Hope Uzodimma’s security personnel while trying to reclaim a property taken over by the State Government.

Recall that a team of government officials and police, led by the Commissioner for lands, Barr. Enyinnaya Onuegbu, on Friday, invaded the Royal Spring Palm Hotels and Apartments, allegedly owned by Nneoma Rochas Okorocha, wife of former Governor Rochas Okorocha, and sealed off the property.

Hope Uzodimma led administration, last week, recovered the Eastern Palm University from Rochas Okorocha and renamed it.

As former Imo governor Rochas Okorocha is battling incumbent governor Uzodinma over the recovery of the University, Uzodinma sealed off Okorocha’s wife’s hotel.

There were reports of sporadic shooting during the operation, as seen in videos from the scene.
