The government of Imo State has confiscated a multi-billion naira estate, Royal Palm Estate, allegedly owned by the wife of the former Governor of Imo state, Nkechi Okorocha.
The said estate located along Akachi road in Owerri, was earlier singled out as part of the former governor’s property allegedly built with public funds.
According to the judicial commission of enquiry on recovery of lands and other related matters, set up by the immediate past Governor, Emeka Ihedioha, the structure was certified to be reclaimed by Imo government after full-scale investigation on the authenticity of Okorocha’s ownership of the estate.
The estate built and commissioned sometime around 2018, had several buildings with the state of the arts facilities which led to its popular demand.
The state Governor, Senator Hope Uzodinma had also recently recovered the Eastern Palm University, Ogboko, also said to have been built with Imo money.
The University, according to reports, was renamed K. O Mbadiwe University.
It is also expected the Uzodinma may soon take over the Rochas Okorocha college of Africa in Orji, alleged to have also been built with Imo money.
