The governor of the state of Imo, Emeka Ihedioha, told the Nigerians not to see the current investigation of his predecessor, Rochas Okorocha, as an act of witch hunt.
This was stated by Ihedioha as he was speaking with journalists from Yola, the capital of the state of Adamawa, after making a sympathetic visit to the state governor, Ahmadu Fintiri, for his father’s death.
The governor said he was waiting for the result of the investigation report and insisted that this investigation was necessary to improve the status of Imo.
Ihedioha also clarified that the recent revelations on the recovery of 1.2 billion dollars and some property from the state government from the immediate past administration did not emerge from him.
The governor said, “I don’t think I said all those things. Because I am not witch-hunting the former governor.
“There was a committee that we set up that is doing all those things.
“The findings of the committee have not been made known to me. Obviously, this (probe) is to make Imo State better now.”
