Students of the Rochas Okorocha Foundation College in Imo state staged a peaceful protest over the battle between the state government and the former governor, their proprietor.
The protesting students took to the streets clad in uniforms on Monday with placards that read ”Don’t hurt our Daddy”, ”If you kill Daddy Rochas, you have killed Millions”, “Don’t kill free education, kill not our dreams”, among other writings.
TheNewsGuru recalls that in mid-2020, Okorocha had stated that there were at least seven panels set up by the state government to review his tenure as the ex-governor of Imo in a manner he warned contravened an order of a federal high court in Abuja.
The Imo government had said it was reviewing all financial transactions of the state during the eight-year tenure of Okorocha.
A committee also said it uncovered N112.8 billion “dubious debts” owed the state by commercial banks.
The EFCC thereafter carried out its own investigation and noted it would prosecute the former governor.
