The Imo State Government on Monday gave reasons why a former Governor of the State, Rochas Okorocha, was let off the hooks at the Imo State Police Command headquarters around 11:30pm on Sunday.

The state Commissioner for information and Strategy, Declan Emelumba, revealed this on Monday.

He said Okorocha, who now represents Imo West Senatorial District, was released by the police on “medical grounds.”

Emelumba said the release of Okorocha didn’t mean he won’t answer to the “offence he committed”.

Emelumba said: “Okorocha was released on Sunday by the police on medical grounds. The man was purging and stooling consistently, the police had to release him on medical grounds to enable him to take care of his health. His release doesn’t mean he will not answer his case.”

But Okorocha, who reacted to the claim while addressing his supporters at his Spibat mansion in Owerri on Monday, said the Presidency intervened in the matter.

“Governor Hope Uzodinma shouldn’t take my peaceful disposition for granted.

“He should remember that he will not be remembered by how many people he fought but how many projects he built.”
