Okorocha, family forfeit billion naira assets to Imo State- Court

Former governor of Imo State Sen. Rochas Okorocha and some of his family members have been ordered by a court to forfeit asset worth billions of naira to the Imo State government.

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission made this known during a media brief, saying, Okorocha, and some members of his family would forfeit to the state government assets traced to his family members.

The commission’s Head of Enugu zonal office , Mr Usman Imam, made the disclosure while speaking on the commission’s collaboration with the United States of America’s Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Imam said the EFCC had obtained orders for the interim forfeiture of assets traced to the former governor, his wife, Nneoma Nkechi, and their daughter.

According to him, the anti-graft agency had obtained similar order on a property traced to Okorocha’s former aide, Mr Paschal Obi.

Imam said the commission had established prima facie cases against the suspects, which they would answer to.

Imam noted that the commission would like to know how the Rochas Foundation and “other accomplices” acquired and or converted some of the property for personal use.

Some of the properties traced to Okorocha include “a 16 – block 96 – flat structure and an eight – bungalow multimillion naira estate, hotel, two schools, shopping plaza, supermarket, hospital and four vehicles.”

Imam said the only property traced to Obi was a hospital, while the remaining property were traced to the former governor, his wife and daughter. “We hope to get permanent forfeiture orders on the property in order to return them to the people of the state,” he said.

Imam further said all the facilities, including the schools, would remain functional as the commission would not like to shut them down for the sake of the students and other users.
