Imo State governor, Emeka Ihedioha has commenced the demolition of Akachi tower, one of the monuments built by the immediate past governor, Rochas Okorocha as his first action as his first action in office.
Ihedioha was sworn-in as the sixth Executive governor of the state on Wednesday.
The Akachi tower was being demolished as at the time of filing this report.
It was built on a reclaimed dumpsite that was abandoned by previous administrations.
The demolition exercise was supervised by soldiers who barred journalists from covering the exercise.
The Akachi monument was one of the structures commissioned by the Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo barely one week ago.
The monument, a massive tower with the symbol of a hand on the Zenith, which Okorocha’s government said was representing the hand of God, sits on an expansive plot of land.
There are fears that the new governor will also demolish other monuments in Owerri, the state capital, especially the famous statues.
