In continuation of its drive to recover monies and other valuables stolen or diverted from the state by officials of previous administrations, the Imo State government under the leadership of Senator Hope Uzodinma has sealed the Royal Palm Estate, a property linked to Nkechi Okorocha, wife of the former governor.
The estate is located within the Akachi axis of Owerri, the state capital.
The Commissioner for Lands, Survey and Physical Planning Development, Enyinnaya Onuegbu, who supervised the sealing of the estate on Friday, announced that the state government had recovered the property.
He stated that closing the estate was consonant with the directive of the Imo State gazette on the report of the Judicial Commission of Inquiry on Recovery of Lands and Related Matters belonging to the state government.
The commissioner said that the Governor Hope Uzodinma-led state government was passionate about recovering assets belonging to the state and its people allegedly looted by past administrations.
Okorocha was the governor of the state between 2011 and 2019 and currently represents Imo West at the Senate.
