The National Vice-Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (South-South), Chief Hilliard Eta, has said his party is not responsible for the non-issuance of the Certificate of Return to the Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha, by the Independent National Electoral Commission.
Okorocha while reacting to INEC’s action, said it was an insult to his person and a mockery of Nigeria’s democracy, alleging that the electoral commission had colluded with some of his political enemies to deny him his mandate.

He was quoted to have said, “I think it is a script the Resident Electoral Commissioner is playing. My election was peaceful, free and fair. All that is happening now is a script carefully planned in Abuja.”

Reacting to Okorocha’s comment, Eta said, “The APC has nothing to do with Okorocha’s predicament with INEC over Certificate of Return. The party has got nothing to do with the INEC’s decision.”

The APC’s national vice-chairman also said the party would recommend the expulsion of Okorocha and others currently on suspension from the APC for alleged anti-party activities.

Eta alleged the suspended people were painting the party in a bad light.

“It is incorrect for him (Okorocha) to think that the party has a hand in the matter. It is characters like Okorocha that are giving us a bad name. Adam Oshiomhole has given a proper and distinguished leadership style. Unfortunately, characters like Okorocha, Osita Okechukwu and Usani (Usani) are giving us a bad name.

“We are going to recommend them for expulsion to the party’s National Executive Committee,” he added.

Okorocha, a senatorial candidate of the APC, was announced winner of the Imo West senatorial election held on February 23 by the Returning Officer, Prof Francis Ibeabuchi, in Orlu, after polling 97,762 votes to defeat his closest rival of the Peoples Democratic Party, Mr Jones Onyereri, who scored 68,117 votes.

But Ibeabuchi made a U-turn in Abuja when he said the results for the district and the declaration that followed were done when he felt he was no longer safe.

Following his revelation, INEC’s Head of Voter Education, Festus Okoye, said the commission would not award a Certificate of Return to any candidate in an election where results were announced under duress.

The commission made good its position on Thursday when it failed to present Certificates of Return to Okorocha and 42 other announced ‘winners’ in the February 23 National Assembly elections.

According to some of the residents of Auga-Akoko where the incident happened, they said kidnappings along Auga-Ise road of Akoko North-East Local Government Area, which had been a thing of past, had suddenly resurfaced with the latest abduction.

Narrating the incident, a source stated that the three victims, who are males were abducted on the same spot where the wife of the Alauga of Auga, Olori Agunloye and her driver, were kidnapped last year.

He added that among those kidnapped was the head of the family travelling in the Corolla car.

According to him, the hoodlums released the wife and his two children to inform their people of the kidnap in order to look for ransom.

In his reaction, the Alauga of Auga, Oba Samuel Agunloye, advised that in order to stop the scourge, there must be an Army formation, as well as constant police patrol in the area.

The monarch disclosed that Ipele-Isua Auga-Akunu-Kabba federal highway needed to be rehabilitated for free flow of vehicles.

The state Police Public Relations Officer, PPRO, Femi Joseph, said investigation had begun to arrest the hoodlums and secure the release of the captives.

A 21-year-old carpenter, Nojeem, who
allegedly set his neighbour’s car ablaze over
his wife’s refusal to accept his sexual
advance, on Wednesday appeared in an Ikeja
Chief Magistrates’.

 

The police charged Nojeem, who lives in
Ayobo-Ipaja in Lagos State, with two counts
of breach of peace and arson.

The Prosecution Counsel, Sergeant Michael
Unah, the defendant allegedly set a
Mitsubishi GDI Space Wagon valued at
N500,000, the property of one Mr Abubakar
ablaze.

Unah told the court that the defendant
committed the offence on March 15, at 3
a.m. at Ayobo-Ipaja, a Lagos suburb.

 

He said the defendant conducted himself in
a manner likely to cause a breach of peace
by unlawfully demanding s-x from the
complainant’s wife when he was on a night
shift at work.

“The defendant knocked on the
complainant’s door in the middle of the night
and demanded s-x from the complainant’s
wife.

complainant’s wife in his dream having
sexual intercourse with him and approached
her to let them have the s-x in real life.

 

“The wife declined and in the process, the

on fire,” the prosecutor said.

 

The offence, he added, contravened the
provisions of sections 168 and 342 (b) of the
Criminal Laws of Lagos State 2015,
(Revised)

 

NAN reports that breach of peace attracts
six months jail term while arson provides life
imprisonment if found convicted.

PDP Looting Govt Properties In Imo – Okorocha Claims

Published

Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State has accused the State Chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, of embarking on a looting spree, ahead of the May 2019, inauguration.

This was made known on Friday, in a press release signed by Sam Onwuemeodo, the Chief Press Secretary to Governor Okorocha.

The statement reads in full:

“We want to inform the general public and Imo people in particular, that the members of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in the State, have embarked on systematic and violent looting of properties owned by the State, and brought or installed by Governor Rochas Okorocha. In doing that, they have adopted various unconventional tactics.

“They have removed most of the solar street lights and other beauteous installations in the State capital. They have removed expensive seats kept in public buildings. They have also begun to snatch official cars, especially from the women appointees. And they operate mostly at night.

“They have formed themselves into Property Recovery Committees and Task Forces, and they claim to have been set up and inaugurated by Chief Emeka Ihedioha, who was declared winner of the March 9, 2019, Governorship election in the State.

“And they have continued to accuse the outgoing government of looting. And in doing that, they have not been able to associate any government functionary with any of their false claims or show evidence of their claims.

“We have also been informed that they clashed with one of the Contractors, over some construction materials at the Heroes Square, when they prevented the Contractor from conveying the materials to his site and had tried to move the materials, but the Contractor resisted them.

“The PDP members have not changed and will never change, with their awkward attitude this time. The irony also is that, in doing these absurd things, they do not care how the generality of Imo people feel. This is regrettable.”
