Former governor of Imo state, Rochas Okorocha, has alleged that police officers watched on as thugs cut his “boys” with machetes during a clash in Imo state.
The senator said that after his orderlies “rushed me to a room and locked me up,” he managed to avoid the suspected assault on Sunday.
Not long after gaining entry to the property by intimidation, masked police officers arrived to escort him away.
As the scene unfolded, supporters of Okorocha clashed with those of Hope Uzodinma, the governor of the state, with whom he had been at loggerheads for some time.

The senator said he “can not even imagine” what happened to him during the conference, speaking during a recorded audio interview played on TV channels.
“I came back from an occasion and proceeded to Royal Palm Hotel to enquire what actually happened. On getting there, I saw a lot of thugs. They started molesting, cutting my boys, shooting. But the police were there too, and they did nothing and said nothing.
“They were macheting… my orderlies rushed me to a room and locked me up. Those boys had teargas, police also were throwing teargas. As they were advancing, the police were backing them up; and they were coming and were shooting.
“I enquired and they said it is the government house police. And I asked, is this with the directive of the IG or the CP? Can the governor actually use government house police to do what he is doing?
“They kept me in a room for some time and all my boys got injured. Right now, my in-law was shot and his legs have been scattered.”
