A Human Right Organization has alleged that there was a plot of assasination on the former Imo State Governor and Senator that represents Imo West Senatorial district at the 9th Nigerian Senate, Senator Rochas Okorocha.
The immediate ex-governor was recently arrested by the police after he led a team of his supporters to reopen the Royal Palm Estate sealed by the present administration in the state.
The group reacted through a statement released by its Adviser, Public Affairs titled "ASSASSINATION ATTEMPT ON THE LIFE OF SEN. ROCHAS OKOROCHA".
The statement reads further:
"We have observed with utter shock, the assassination attempt on the life of Senator Rochas Okorocha and his aides by sponsored thugs in the presence of law enforcement agencies in Imo State.
Accusing fingers are being pointed to Imo Government House. It is clearly barbaric, uncalled for and completely unacceptable in a state where he is Senator, former governor and a life long philanthropist/humanitarian.
We strongly condemn this horrible act (that could lead to a complete collapse of law and order in Imo) and call on the teeming supporters and well wishers of Owelle Ndigbo in Nigeria and the world to remain calm and law abiding while we await a much needed response from the appropriate authorities".
