Governor Ihedioha Probes Land Allocations During Ohakim and Okorocha’s Tenures

Ihedioha’s chief press secretary, Chibuike Onyeukwu, in a statement on Thursday said the commission would be chaired by Justice Florence Duruoha.

Ikedi Ohakim was governor of the state from 2007 to 2011 while Rochas Okorocha succeeded him from 2011 until his hand over to Ihedioha in 2019, Igbere TV reports.

Ihedioha said the probe was necessary to “rest the vexatious issues of alleged breach and irregularities in land administration.”

The statement said the panel was given two months to complete the assignment.

“The Commission shall have full powers and authority to hold hearings which shall be conducted in a manner prescribed by the Commission of Inquiry law,” it said.

Members of the panel include Emmanuel Nze, Cajethan Ohiri, Mezu Ozowara, Nkiru Onwu, Kelly Azike; while Isaac Oguzie will serve as the secretary.

The governor said he was exercising the powers conferred on him by section 3 of the Commission Of Inquiry (cap. 24), Laws of Eastern Nigeria, 1963.
