The South-East Governors’ Forum has waded into the impasse between the Imo government and the state’s former governor, Senator Rochas Okorocha.

A squabble ensued between both sides’ supporters on February 21 when Okorocha allegedly broke into the Royal Spring Palm Apartment, Owerri, sealed by the Imo government on February 19.

 

The situation was brought under control by the Imo Police Command, which later arrested the senator.

Chairman of the forum, Governor David Umahi of Ebonyi, in a statement signed by his Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Mr Francis Nwaze on Monday said that the forum was already handling the issue.

Umahi said contacts have already been made to resolve the impasse and assured that both parties have agreed to a truce.

“South-east leaders are capable of settling their disputes internally instead of washing their linen in public. We sue for calm among the supporters of both leaders to ensure a timely and amicable resolution of the disagreement,” the statement read.

“They should also shun provocative statements as we work towards restoring normalcy to the situation.”
