June 17, 2013 – Governor Rochas Okorocha’s Convoy Attacked By Imo Youths
Within 2 months of a ghastly accident that landed the Governor in hospital bed, another one has happened.
The minor incident happened in Awa, Oguta LGA of Imo State on Sunday June 16, 2013.
We learnt governor okorocha’s convoy hit and knocked down a cyclist in the campaign train of PDP candidate for the House of Assembly rerun election in Oguta council area.
The rampaging youths in the campaign train of Eugene Dibiagwu of the PDP, intercepted Okorocha’s convoy and barricaded the road – in defiance of threats by security operatives attached to the governor’s convoy.
According to an eye-witness account, the governor was on a project tour of Oguta Local Government Area when his convoy ran into the campaign train of the PDP flagbearer yesterday.
The eye-witness claimed the governor’s outrider knocked down a cyclist and thereafter seized his radio.
But another account alleged that Okorocha was on a mobilisation tour for the All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA) candidate, Walter Uzonwanne, for the rerun election slated for next week.
