Recall that a few days ago, some Imo state elders allegedly came together to invoke the spirit of dead forefathers to work against Governor Rochas Okorocha.
The post was shared by a Facebook user, Ichie Chinedum Cham-Agiriga, who wrote that some elders of Owerri town came together and decided to seek the assistance of their late forefathers, against Governor Rochas.
The story has been trending online since then.
Owerri Elders reportedly gathered yesterday at the graveside of Late Sir Arugo, to reportedly lay curses on Rochas and invoke the spirit of their dead forefathers against the governor for relocating the ancestral Eke Ukwu Owerri market.
The photo shows some elders in front of what looks like a grave, with one of them saying something over the micro phone.
Here’s what Facebook user, Ichie Chinedum-Cham Agiriga wrote;
“Owerri elders gathered today at the graveside of Late Sir Arugo to pour libation, lay curses on Rochas and invoke the spirirt of the dead forefathers against the governor for relocating the ancestral Eke Ukwu Owerri market.
This grave-side gathering was sparked off by the demolition of Eke Ukwu Owerri market which Owerri people have continued to grieve over.
As Owerri elders are preparing their dead for a major battle against Rochas, the governor moved on with his ransacking and demolition plans; the Keke riders have their deadline tomorrow to stop plying within the city, Mechanic village Naze, also have their deadline this week to vacate the area and move to Avu, a distant outskirt near Owerri, also shop Owners in New Market Owerri, have their deadline looming around the corner as they have been informed that bulldozers are already asking after their shops.
Can someone tell Rochas that he should get ready to fight the dead who have allegedly been invoked by aggrieved elders? Who knows what Imo State capital will look like if everyone affected by the demolitions and quit notices invoke their dead against the governor?
