There is a brewing political crisis in Imo state as the crisis between Okorocha and Governor Uzodimma took another dimension on Sunday, February 21 - The Imo state government had sealed a property belonging to the former governor's wife Mrs. Okorocha on the ground that it was built against the constitutional law of the state - Okorocha, however, ignored the law and broke into the property belonging to his wife Mrs. Okorocha on Sunday and was reportedly arrested following a violent confrontation with security agents.

Report emerging from The Nation indicates that Senator Rochas Okorocha, a former governor of Imo state, has been detained. According to the newspaper, Okorocha was arrested for challenging his successor, Governor Hope Uzodimma, to reopen the Royal Palm Estate which was sealed by the state government.

It was gathered that Senator Okorocha, accompanied by his son-in-law and political protege, Uche Nwosu, broke the keys to take the estate which belongs to his wife, Mrs. Okorocha.

The Imo west senator's daring action infuriated the loyalists of the Uzodimma-led Imo state government who confronted him in a clash that has reportedly left one person injured.

Earlier, it was reported that the Imo government sealed off the estate which is located in the state capital, Owerri, alleging that it was built on one of the state's green verges against the lawful master plan. A statement by the state government noted that the directive was given by Governor Uzodimma and executed by the state commissioner for lands survey and physical planning, Barrister Enyinna Onuegbu. The seizure, according to the commissioner, was in compliance with the directive of the Imo state gazette on the report of the Judicial Commission of Enquiry on the recovery of Lands and other related matters.
