On Thursday, Imo State government attempted to demolish the Akachi monument which was built by Rochas Okorocha, the immediate past governor. While earth-moving equipment sent by the government was demolishing the monument, military operatives numbering over 25 came and chased the operators of the equipment away.
The military men who barricaded the environment as of the time of filing this report, resisted people who had come to catch a glimpse of the demolition from gaining access to the place. The development caused a rowdy scene in and around the arrow. The soldiers stooped people from taking photographs of the scene.
