A State High Court in Owerri, Imo State, has on Monday, August 9, ordered the final and absolute forfeiture of Royal Palm Springs Hotel; and other properties belonging to former Governor of the State, Senator Rochas Okorocha and other members of his family.
The Presiding Justice Fred Njemanze, ruled that Okorocha’s counsel failed to give concrete and verifiable reasons why a final and absolute forfeiture order should not be given in favour of the Imo state government.
Justice Njemanze added that the suit filed against Imo state Government by counsel to Okorocha was not properly filed.
Justice Njemanze maintained that the white paper gazette by the Imo State Government is a legally binding document.
