Gov Rochas......demolition of Ekeukwu market was the best thing that has happened to Owerri

Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State finally broke the yolk following the death  of a 10-year old boy, Somtochukwu Ibeanusi  killed at the demolition of Ekeukwu market in owerri, he asked the people of the state, why they should cry more than the bereaved.

The governor made this statement to newsmen in Owerri, through a release by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Sam Onwuemeodo. Chief Rochas Okorocha According to the release, “We want to use the opportunity to inform the members of the public to disregard rumors making the rounds with regards to Ekeukwu and whatever it represents. Those things are social media rumors and do not represent practical realities.

“The issue of Ekeukwu was taken beyond the scope it represents. “And I still maintain that the removal of that market was the best thing that has happened to Owerri capital city and has brought sanity to the city. “Before now, the headquarter of all criminal activities was the Ekeukwu market and as we progress, we want to live like other cities in the world.”

Okorocha insisted that, “It is rather unfortunate that some politicians from Owerri who are on the other side of the divide have politicized the death of the 10-year-old boy and are now crying more than the bereaved. “And recently, they behaved like educated illiterates by the acts they did at Ukwu Ekwema where they were reported to be calling on their dead forefathers. This is unfortunate and must be condemned.”
