Nigeria News: Rochas Okorocha released from police custody

The Imo State Police Command has released Rochas Okorocha, a former Governor of the State.

Orlando Ikeokwu, the state Police Public Relations Officer, disclosed this while featuring Channels Television’s program, Sunrise Daily, on Monday.

Okorocha was arrested after he broke into an estate belonging to his wife, which the state government sealed.

The Imo West Senator, while speaking on his arrest, had accused the state Governor, Hope Uzodinma, of ordering his arrest.

However, the state police spokesman said Okorocha was released last night.

Ikeokwu also hinted at the possibility of prosecuting Okorocha if found guilty.

He explained that the former governor was only “invited” for “questioning” over the Spring Palm Estate’s unsealing.

“He was released later at night. If anybody is found culpable, definitely, he will be charged to court.

“If the investigation proves that he (Okorocha) has committed an offense, he will be charged to court,” he said.
