GOVERNMENT PRESS RELEASE
IMO STATE GOVERNMENT SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT
It has come to the attention of Imo State Government that some persons, are currently engaged in land grabbing, purporting same to have been approved by His Excellency, the Executive Governor, Senator Hope Uzodimma.
It has become necessary to state that since his assumption of office as Governor, His Excellency has neither allocated any land to any person nor signed any Certificate of Occupancy.
Government is aware that the persons engaged in these illegal transactions are colluding with unscrupulous land officials to back date their documents.
Government therefore warns that anyone who engages in any illegal land acquisition and development will lose such property through revocation or outright demolition of structures therein.
Government also warns that all lands revoked recently in line with the White Paper on Lands Recovery and Related Matters in Imo State are still prohibited from allocation.
The public is advised to be guided accordingly.
Chief Cosmas Iwu
