Justice Inyang Okoro, in an explosive letter to the Chief Justice of Nigeria, revealed that former governor of Rivers state, Rotimi Amaechi attempted to bribe him to rule in favor of the APC in the last Rivers state elections.
Below is an excerpt from the letter;
“My Lord, I strongly believe that this my travail is not unconnected with the verbal report I made to you on 1st February 2016 about the visit to my official residence by H/E Rotimi Amaechi, former Governor of Rivers State, now Minister of Transportation. In that report, I told you, my Lord, that Mr. Amaechi said that the President of Nigeria and the All Progressives Congress mandated him to inform me that they must win their election appeals in respect of Rivers State, Akwa Ibom State and Abia State at all cost.”
Rotimi Amaechi has since denied this in a statement released by his aide. The statement read;
This Justice Okoro’s accusations against Amaechi is a figment of his imagination, concocted to obfuscate and politicize the real issues for his arrest and DSS investigation of allegations of corruption against him.
The claims by Justice Okoro against Amaechi are blatant lies, bereft of any iota of truth or even logic.
Amaechi did not, and has never approached Justice Okoro in respect of the cases Okoro mentioned or any other case. This is a cheap attempt, albeit, political move to drag the name of Amaechi into something he knows nothing about.
Justice Okoro should face his issues and leave Amaechi out of it.
He will be hearing from our lawyers.
