Former Governor of Imo State, Rochas Okorocha, has expressed worries over the high level of killings in the state, saying the state is not the same as the one he governed from 2011.

Okorocha expressed displeasure that over seven governors in the country and other notable individuals would have attended the burial ceremony of Jemimah Nwosu, mother of his son-in-law, Uche Nwosu, but could not because any governor visiting Imo State must come with armoured vehicles.

“Indeed I am not happy with what is happening in my state.

“This is not the Imo State we know, these killings must stop, this was the situation I met on ground in 2011 when I came in as governor and I did my best to bring it to a halt,” he said.

Okorocha, now Senator representing Imo West Senatorial District, said this at St. Peter’s Anglican Church Eziama Obaire in Nkwerre Local Government Area of Imo State.

He opined that many other notable individuals would have attended the burial but due to insecurity and negative reports coming from the state they could not.

Okorocha appealed to youths in the state not to vent their anger on innocent Imo people over poor governance in the state but rather use their voters cards to express their anger to vote out bad government and leaders both at the state and federal government level in the upcoming general election in 2023.
