Okorocha demolishes FG property in Owerri

The Senate Committee on Industries, has cautioned the Imo State Government against its alleged encroachment on Federal Government property in the state.

The Chairman of the committee, Senator Sam Egwu, gave the caution in Owerri while inspecting some projects executed by the Small and Medium Enterprises Development Agency of Nigeria (SMEDAN) in the state.

Egwu claimed that the state government had encroached on part of SMEDAN land in the state.

But in a swift reaction, Governor Rochas Okorocha’s Media Aide, Mr Sam Onwuemedo, denied the allegation of encroachment, saying the land in question belonged to Imo government.

But, Egwu said the committee would communicate to the senate leadership its observations on the land.

The Director General of SMEDAN, Mr Dikkumany Radda, has expressed worries over the demolition of IDC property by the state government but said that the ministry would do everything possible to recover the property.

The Coordinator of Industrial Development Centre, Mrs Chinyere Woke, told the committee that agents of the state government, without any notice, entered the land and demolished the structure in it.

Woke said that members of the staff were threatened by Okorocha not to resist the takeover of the land.

She, however, added that the centre had communicated the development to appropriate authorities for action.
