According to one Ingrid Adaeze Okonta (@i.o.okonta) on Instagram, the governor of Imo state, Rochas Okorocha, has allegedly destroyed a rental property worth 60 million naira, belonging to her grandma, withouth proper notice or compensation!
My grandma Chief/Mrs. P.A Nwameme built this 3
story rental property with 18 first level storefronts in Mgbidi,IMO
State in 1976. Governor Rochas and his evil contractors only gave her
verbal notice to remodel the building to the standard of the new market.
So my mother and her siblings decided to call from the U. S to look
for a contractor who can remodel the three story building. The plan was
when a suitable contractor was found, my mother and her siblings will
all go to Nigeria in order to supervise the renovation. Before we knew
it, my mother got a call from Nigeria that my grandmother’s three story
building was bulldozed. Governor Rochas and his evil contractors never
gave any time for a renovation. With no type of remorse he destroyed a
60million Naira worth building, with no compensation. This is illegal
and shameful on the governor’s part. People live in that three story
building and they have their businesses there. He has displaced so many
people.My grandmother is a widow and this is one of her retirement
incomes. This is so wrong on every level. They encourage Igbo people in
diaspora to come back to Nigeria to develop but , yet they are
destroying our property. It is very discouraging to want give back when
your own people treat you like rubbish.
