Okorocha’s aides granted bail, to provide N5m, surety

Steve Asimobi, Darlington Flowrymz Ibekwe, and others aides of Senator Rochas Okorocha who were earlier today arraigned before the magistrate court have been granted bail as the court adjourned to March. They are to provide a traditional ruler who will sign as surety with the sum of N5 million.

The Imo state Police Command, Monday had arraigned fourteen aides of Senator Rochas Okorocha before her lordship, B. U Adikaibe of Magistrate Court 4, Owerri.

They were arraigned on a seven-count charge bordering on disturbance to the security of the state and destruction of government seal at Royal Spring Palm Estate, aka Akachi Estate in Owerri, on Sunday.

However the Imo state police command has confirmed that it moved former governor of Imo state, Rochas Okorocha and Senator representing Imo West Senatorial district, to its custody to explain why he led violent breaking into the government sealed Royal palm spring estate along Akachi road in Owerri.

The State Police Public Relations Officer, PPRO, Orlando Ikeokwu, confirmed this to newsmen in Owerri.

He said that the police moved to Akachi road when they received a distress call that the Royal Palm spring Estate sealed by the government had been violently opened by men led Okorocha.

Orlando briefly said: “The command received a distress call regarding what we termed to be an unrest at Royal Spring palm estate, and the operatives moved to the place we discovered Okorocha led some persons to the place hitherto sealed by the Imo government.

Meanwhile, Senator Okorocha and Nwosu’s PA Darlington Flowrymz Ibekwe reportedly ‘faints’ in the court room moments ago as they were arraigned .
