A combined team of government officials and police officers, led by the Commissioner for lands, Enyinnaya Onuegbu, had on Friday, Feb 19, stormed the Royal Spring Palm Hotels and Apartments allegedly belonging to Nneoma Rochas Okorocha, wife of Senator Rochas Okorocha, and sealed off the property.
Hope Uzodinma’s administration has aggressively been recovering assets from the former governor Rochas, assets alleged to have been amassed with public funds. Last week, he recovered and renamed the Eastern Palm University from Rochas Okorocha.
While the former Imo governor is still battling incumbent governor Uzodinma over the recovery of the University, Uzodinma sealed off his (Rochas) wife’s hotel.
There were reports of sporadic shooting during the operation, as seen in videos from the scene.
