Abia State Governor,  Alex Otti, has directed aides of former governor,  Okezie Ikpeazu, to return all government properties in their possession within three days or face the law.

A statement by the Secretary to the State Government (SSG), Prof. Kenneth Kalu, accused appointees of the Ikpeazu administration of illegally  holding on to government properties.

It read: “It has come to the knowledge of the state government that some government officials, including appointees of the past administration, are still holding on to government properties, such as vehicles, generators, laptops and other assets.

“Anyone who is in possession of government properties is hereby directed to return such to the Office of the Secretary to the State Government, on or before 4pm on Tuesday, June 6, 2023, and obtain necessary acknowledgement from the SSG’s Office”.

The release warned that failure to comply with the governor’s directive will attract sanctions.
