Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo says his first son, Ahamefula Okorocha is alive, strong and healthy, contrary to social media reports on Sunday that he died in London.

The Social Media on Sunday went wild with reports that the governor’s son, Ahamefula Okorocha, had died at The Royal London Hospital located at White Chapel Road.

However, Mr. Okorocha’s Chief Press Secretary, Sam Onwuemeodo, has dispelled the claims, describing those behind the reports as agents of Satan.

“The young engineer is doing very well in his profession.

“How could anybody ever wish his fellow human dead?

“This is strange and we all should discourage this kind of insinuation,” he said.

The governor recalled that he was recently reported to have died when he travelled overseas on a business trip shortly after he had announced plans to relocate the ancient Ekeukwu Owerri market, situated at the heart of the city.

Other markets marked for relocation are the popular Ama Hausa market, the yam traders and all traders along Douglas road in the capital city, Owerri.

The state government had directed traders in the markets to move out of the affected places to their new locations by September 30, 2016.

The relocation issue had been enmeshed in protest by Owerri women and a court case between the Owerri Indigenes and the state government before the market was eventually relocated on August 26, 2017.

According to Mr. Okorocha, the false report on the death of his son is coming only two weeks after the relocation of the market.

“God is the giver of life and nobody can determine how God does his things.

“The general public should disregard such report,” he said. (NAN)

    “This is strange” I agree Governor, please ask otile this same question. This is what evil does and the good Lord will always expose them… ‘“God is the giver of life and nobody can determine how God does his things”…Indeed.

      I hate it when our wicked and corrupt rulers mentioned the names of God.

        Well, I do too but not when you are wishing somebody dead simply because he/she doesn’t come from your village or you disagree with him/her politically.

    My people have taken political disagreement to a very devilish and diabolical level. It must be the color of our skin.
