Okorocha swallows his vomit , denies cattle colony approval

 www.odogwublog.com reports that following speculations over approved cattle colonies, Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State yesterday debunked the claims, even as he described it as a wicked, unfounded and untrue warped thinking of desperate mischief makers via the social media.

Information Commissioner, Prof Nnamdi Obiaraeri made the assertion in Owerri, the Imo State capital following online reports alleging the cattle colony approval. 

Okorocha, said "that there is no law, policy, decision, plan, request or intention to cede, allocate or designate any part of Imo State as a cattle colony". 

He explained that the Okigwe Regional Cattle Market is not a cattle colony, saying it operates same way as "the cattle markets in Lokpa in Abia State and Awka in Anambra State, respectively, to mention a few, are not cattle colonies". 

The Governor called on Imo people and residents to disregard the rumours which he described as baseless and laughable.

"It is unfortunate that manufacturing wicked and capricious lies on an hourly basis has become the hallmark or DNA of desperate opposition politicians in our dear State.

These shameless elements and agents of national disunity have consistently, both in words and deeds, shown themselves to be sworn enemies of Ndi Imo in particular and Nigerians in general.

Okorocha condemned the gruesome killings allegedly carried out by Fulani herdsmen saying "for the avoidance of doubt, the dastardly act of extra-judicial killing or taking the lives and or wanton destruction of the properties of other citizens by blood thirsty herdsmen or ethnic militias or terrorists anywhere in the country stand condemned". 

According to him, "criminality can neither be legalised nor excused by diversionary labelling or dangerous over generalisations as a crime remains a crime no matter by whom committed".

He reassured Imo people that the "Rescue Mission Government is willing, ever ready and prepared to defend the lives and properties of Imolites and will not hesitate to deal decisively with criminal  offenders accordingly to the full weight of the law".
