The operatives of the Economic Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) have sealed Rochas Foundation College, East High Primary and Secondary school and All-In Supermarket, all in Owerri, Imo State.
The sealed properties belong the family of former governor of Imo State, Rochas Okorocha. While the College belongs to the former governor, the primary and secondary school belongs to his first daughter, Uloma Nwosu.
Okorocha who was governor of Imo State between 2011 and 2019 is currently representing Imo West senatorial district in the Nigerian senate.
Notice placed on the sealed assets read: “Under Investigation by EFCC. Keep Off.”
But the management of East High Primary and Secondary School in a statement on Wednesday said that its school was only under investigation and not sealed by the EFCC.
The statement which was signed by Jones Onwuasoanya said that while the EFCC had the constitutional power to investigate the school, the funds used in establishing the schools were legitimate.
When contacted, Okorocha’s media aide, Sam Onwuemeodo, said that he was putting a press statement on the development together.
