The South East Governors Forum has waded into the face-off between the Imo State Government and the state’s former Governor, Senator Rochas Okorocha.

The News Agency of Nigeria recalls that a squabble ensued between both sides’ supporters on February 21 when Okorocha allegedly broke into the Royal Spring Palm Apartment, Owerri, sealed by the Imo State Government on February 19.

The apartment is owned by Okorocha’s wife, Nkechi.

The situation was brought under control by the Imo State Police Command, which later arrested the senator.

The Chairman of the South East Governors’ Forum, Governor David Umahi of Ebonyi State, in a statement signed by his Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Francis Nwaze, on Monday said the forum was already handling the issue.

Umahi said that contacts have already been made to resolve the impasse and assured that both parties have agreed to a truce.

The statement said: “South-east leaders are capable of settling their disputes internally instead of washing their linen in public.

“We sue for calm among the supporters of both leaders to ensure a timely and amicable resolution of the disagreement.”

The Forum Chairman urged Imo State and South East citizens to conduct their business peacefully and according to the law.

“They should also shun provocative statements as we work towards restoring normalcy to the situation,” Umahi said in the statement.
