The former governor had on Friday said his arrest order by Imo government was an open invitation to anarchy and fracas in the state.

Okorocha, representing Imo West at the Senate, was reacting to a call on Thursday by the Secretary to State Government (SSG) Mr Uche Onyeaguocha for Okorocha’s arrest over an alleged assault of a government official at Okorocha’s residence.

Reports have it that a video trending online captured some thugs flogging Mr Jasper Ndubuaku, Chairman, Imo Committee on Recovery of Government Property at Okorocha’s residence in Owerri.

“The arrest order only added to their disrespect for me as the past governor and this is very bad precedence which the government of Gov. Emeka Ihedioha is creating,” okorocha had said. Ugboma, however, told newsmen in Lagos on Sunday that it was wrong of Okorocha to question constituted authority in the state.

The lawmaker representing Oguta constituency of Imo said that beating of the committee chairman of recovery of government property was wrong as he was on an official assignment for the state.

“In 2011 when Okorocha took over from Chief Ikedi Ohakim as Imo governor, he made Dr Placid Ekwueme, his recovery committee chairman and no one attacked him even when he attacked and took away things from people.

“Ekwueme went to homes to recover alleged stolen property and nobody stopped him. Why is Okorocha bitter and angry now. “Okorocha’s reaction is an afront on a sitting governor and his statement an insult on all of us.

“It is also a disservice in his office as a lawmaker of the Federal Republic of Nigerian and a past governor of the state. “The office of a governor in a state is an exalted one which Okorocha also occupied. His anarchy statement is barbaric because we are not in a military era,” he said.

According to Ugboma, Okorocha is free to seek redress if he feels aggrieved rather than make utterances that may lead to anarchy in the state.

“There are so many challenges of security in the land and leaders must be careful to avoid statements or actions that may further compound the situation. “Any action or statement that may incite the people must be taken and treated seriously as treason of sorts considering the state of security in Nigeria,” he added.
