“We followed up to find out the truth and with what we have seen today, in Okorocha’s warehouse there is a plan by Okorocha, to set up a ceramic factory with government-owned properties as a personal factory.

“A reliable information we have gathered from those guiding the warehouse said that sometimes they (Okorocha’s) people do come here to pick some items and sell them.

“However, some of the equipment we are looking for are here and we have come to take possession of the Imo properties and anybody we see here will blame himself. We have taken over the government properties for the good of Imolites based on their demands.

“Some of the public properties discovered included equipment of the Nsu ceramic and tiles industries set up by the then government of Sam Mbakwe as the industry established for Imo people have been personalized.

“We also found street lights equipment and their components, traffic light accessories, artificial tree plants were all found in the large warehouse owned by Okorocha. Also, a moulder from the Nsu tiles and ceramics and other components of the Nsu tiles Industries were discovered to be in the warehouse and now we have taken over.”
