Friday 1 September 2017



Ben Alvin Obi, for Family Writers Press.

Following the recent demolition of people's goods at Eke Ukwu market around Douglas road in Owerri, Imo State which took peoples lives, it is now a case in court between Owerri people and Governor Rochas Okorocha. Family Writers correspondent in Owerri, has come out with facts and to notify the world that Rochas Okorocha's interest in  relocating the market has something to do with a personal business he has with Alhaji Aliko Dangote.  There have been speculations more especially from the inhabitants and indigenes of  Owerri, that Rochas Okorocha's reasons for demolishing the market is because he wants to sale the land to Alhaji Aliko Dangote.

After the  quit notice  spread all over Imo State media houses, on Friday night being the 25th of August, 2017, at about 9:30pm , almost all the villages within the  Owerri metropoly heard the news that night and swore never to give-in cheapily to such chicken tyrranical government policy. They vowed to rather die than to see their market  demolished by Rochas Okrocha and cohorts. Most of the indegenes and property owners at the designated area went on Facebook and other social media live to tell the world about Rochas Okorocha's plan to demolish their only market in Owerri municipal without proper consultations and compensations.

The Owerri metropoly comprises of:
5) And Umuonyima
They were all present that night and even the next day being 26th of August 2017, before and after the demolition.

One of the elders from Umuoronjo  whom I interviewed through a phone call told me that the case is now in court. He disclosed that the Chief Judge  of Imo State High Court 1 told Rochas  Okorocha, the Governor of Imo State to pay the sum of #1,250000(i.e. one million, two hundred and fifty thousand naira for damages . And the money is to be paid to the people affected. After the last court sitting, she disclosed that the damages is as regard to the part of the market that he demolished at the earlier stage. It was reported that three  (3) people were shot dead and many were injured  due to their refusal to vacate the market. The people of Owerri were very angry that Rochas Okorocha did not see Ama-awusa market to demolish, he did not kill them, but he killed Owerri people and took over their market. The people took  to the streets of Owerri, "shouting No Election in Imo State". Also,  " Okoroawusa has killed us, Okoroawusa has left Hausa market and demolished our only source of income". What a mess!

Furthermore, earlier before now, traditional rulers were the most  respected people by the Government and communities but they were over looked and neglected by Rochas Okorocha. A woman who pleaded anonymous said that, this should be an eye opener to the people of Imo State to forget anything that concerns Nigerian Government and pull their full surport in Biafra quest and struggle.

Another witness said that the militants brought by Rochas to clamp down on Owerri people were from Ohaji. she revealed that they would stop Ohaji people from coming to Owerri to trade in any of their markets. She further stressed that Ohaji people's contribution in killing Owerri people have made them to become enemies. The question is, are those killers really Ohaji people or are they Hausa Fulani terrorists that Rochas used and tagged them Ohaji people??
