…if he hadn’t cleared that air

An Owerri based legal practitioner, Obidike Nwagwu have revealed that former governor of Imo State, and Senator representing Orlu zone, Senator Rochas Okorocha, could have gotten himself arrested, and accused of sponsoring terrorism, if he hadn’t cleared the air over who he gave the N500million.

Okorocha had come on Channels TV, to state that he paid a total of N500million to a group, which was assumed to be the Nnamdi Kanu led IPOB, in order to maintain peace in the state.

In a swift reaction, following newspaper publications of Okorocha paying IPOB N500million, Okorocha, through his Chief Press Secretary, Mr Sam Onwuemeodo, cleared the air, stating he gave the money to former militants in the state, and not the IPOB.

Recall that the Nnamdi Kanu led IPOB, have been proscribed by the Nigerian government, and should Okorocha give money to them, it could be viewed that he is sponsoring terrorism, and could be arrested for it.
