How Power Drunk Imo Governor, Rochas Okorocha Brutalized My Driver- Senator Anyanwu
One of the Senators representing Imo state in the National Assembly, Senator Chris Anyanwu is having it rough in the hands of mystery billionaire governor of her home state of Imo, Rochas Okorocha. In her narration of how the governor supervised his official and unofficial security aides to brutalize her drivers along the Owerri-Umuahia expressway yesterday, she described the Okorocha’s account of what happened at the scene of the incident as a lie that can only be told by a crook.
A statement issued to react to the governor’s statement in which he accused the senator of breaching his security by breaking into his convoy on the highway, Anyanwu described Okorocha as a born liar. The picture of battered driver of Anyanwu however exposes the governor as the power drunk aggressor. Her narration reads:
“The governor lied. This is one case governor Rochas cannot cover up. And no amount of propaganda can turn the truth on its head. What happened was a simple case of shameful show of power….a governor visiting the governed with brutality for absolutely no reason. My three cars were ahead of the governor. There was no indication the governor was approaching. No flags, no advance outriders. There was a hundai bus with tinted glasses , a number of small cars and open hilux with many uniformed men. Being ahead of them on the busy Owerri- Umuahia road, it was difficult to know who was coming until the hilux passed us. We then immediately cleared the road and stopped for them to pass. But instead of passing, five vehicles completely surrounded our three cars. Over thirty men from all sides descended on us. First they tried to force open my car.
“My driver locked it. Then they went to my advance car and back up cars. Pulled out the drivers, plummeted one and pushed him into the gutter. The other one they dragged into the bush. Ten men descended on him., gashed his head and continued to pound him until I ran out of my car barefooted pleading ” don’t kill him. He is my driver. I am Senator Anyanwu. One non-uniformed man turned on me, cocked his gun at me and said he would blow me away if I didn’t back off. Meanwhile, Governor Rochas had ordered his men to disarm my police security. They tore his uniform, ripped off his belt used it to flog his body and snatched his gun. In the struggle that ensued from that order, my men were able to snatch back their gun.
It is clear that if I had not run out to beg and shout against their ferocious brutality, they would have killed someone and come out lying to cover up their acts. But by coming out to identify myself, it was obvious that they had been caught in their act. They scampered off and immediately called a press conference to do damage,control. Here are the questions to ask…. If we were ahead of the governors motorcade, how then was it possible to run into his motorcade, block him off do all the things that read like children’s fiction. Ask the governor how did my driver end up in the bush with his ahead gashed. What did he do and what did he say. He was watching it all. We saw him.
“Many more people beyond my entourage saw him very well. The governor had at least 20 uniformed police in red barrett, 8 SSS operatives in mufty. Then he had at least a dozen un-uniformed armed men. These were his private militia trained by Israeli contractors. And it was these men that dragged the driver into the bush. The existence of these unregistered, un-uniformed security raises serious security consequences. From what I saw yesterday, it was quite clear Rochas is preparing to turn on the people of IMO state. This is a dangerous development. Now a man who had this army of security cannot expect anyone to believe him when he claims he was over run by threesecurity men. What is more deeply troubling is that he would resort to lying like a common thief to cover up his track.”
