Uzodinma denies any plans to assassinate Okorocha


Senator Hope Uzodinma, the Imo State governor, has denied claims that there were plans to assassinate his predecessor, Rochas Okorocha.

The Governor told newsmen after a meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa in Abuja that he has no personal issues with Okorocha.

According to him, “You will recall that before I became the governor, the Ihedioha administration set up a judicial panel of inquiry to look into acquisitions and allegations of lands, converting government lands to personal property and then removing private lands from individuals and giving to other individuals.

“The judicial panel of inquiry chaired by a judge met and they concluded our job and a white paper have since been raised.

“You know institutions and agencies that are involved with implementation are doing their job.
