Following the release of the letter signed by Mr. Uzoahia Benneth, the Transport Officer, Office of the Governor which has been addressed to the Commissioner of Police, Imo State Command to immediately expedite actions on some individuals who has refused to return government vehicles in their possession since they left office despite all efforts to recover them.
In the letter which has been made public, shows that the immediate past Deputy Governor of Imo State, Hon. Gerald Irona has in his possession a Land Cruiser V8, Land Cruiser V6 and a Toyota Hilux as well as Hon. Jones Onyeriri who was a former member representing Nkwerre federal constituency in the House of Representatives and Hon. Obinna Duruaku both in possession of a Ford Ranger respectively.
Against this backdrop, a socio-political group has lent their voice in calling for the immediate arrest and recovery of all government properties in the possession of the former Deputy Governor Irona and others and accused the immediate past administration of Emeka Ihedioha as corrupt and heavily involved in looting government properties by his appointees.
While the group insists that the commissioner of police should not spare any sacred cow in the move by the state government to recover all that belongs to imo people they enjoined the state government to beam its touch light on the other appointees of the immediate past administration and without delay constitute a panel of inquiry to investigate the previous administration in the state.
They further appealed that while recovery of the government vehicles and other properties from these men is not enough, they should be arrested and prosecuted in order to serve as a deterrent to other greedy politicians in the state.
The group appreciated the firm commitment and resolution of the shared prosperity government of Gov. Hope Uzodimma in leaving no stone unturned in the lawful moves to recover all government properties looted by past administrations and called on Imolites to rally round and support the state government.
