Uzodinma Vs Okorocha: Okorocha Loyalist Slumps As Court Grants 14 Ex-governor’s Loyalists N70m Bail

There was a mild drama at an Owerri Magistrate Court, Imo State on Monday as one of the 14 loyalists of ex-Imo governor Okorocha, Darlington Ibekwe, being arraigned for breaking into the sealed Royal Spring Palm Estate slumped inside the courtroom.

Ibekwe and 13 other loyalists of Senator Okorocha, were accused of conspiring among themselves to disobey a lawful order issued by the Imo state government by removing the seal of the state government and entering into the sealed premises of Royal Spring Palm Hotel and Apartments belonging to Okorocha.

Police prosecutor, Omo-Osagie M. A. told the court that Okorocha’s former appointees, and some others at large broke into the premises on Sunday

While Ibekwe was also accused of publishing a recorded defamatory matter on social media with intent to injure the reputation of the state government and the person of Governor Hope Uzodimma by exposing to hatred, contempt, ridicule and damage his reputation, Olu Chizoba was charged with unlawful possession of double barrel pump action gun without license.

After a six-count charge was read to the suspects, council to the defendants, Eddy Onyema, sought for their bail, assuring that they would return to the court to take their trial.

Onyema noted that none of the charges against the defendants was a capital offence, said, “worst, some of them are felony. That’s why we’re seeking for their bail”.

However, when the magistrate, B. U. Adikaibe, returned to the courtroom for her ruling, Ibekwe Darlington, slumped.

He was however, revived by his others, who also pleaded for water with which he was revived.
