Only a court of competent jurisdiction, not a panel of enquiry or legislative assembly, can order the confiscation of a citizens property. To the best of our knowledge, no court of competent jurisdiction has so ordered.Owelle Rochas Okorocha reserves his full right accessing his wifes property without let or hindrance. Under the law, you cannot break into, or trespass on, your own property. The offending party were state actors who went out of their way to recruit Owelle Okorochas political opponents to assault him under the disguise of arresting him.Ohanaeze Ndigbo demands for his (Okorochas) unconditional apologies tendered to him. On the alternative, where he is found to have contravened the law, Ohanaeze demands he be immediately charged to a court of competent jurisdiction to defend himself.We call on Igbo elders to urgently intervene. They should summon Governor Uzodinma and Owelle Okorocha with the hope of speedily reconciling them. We note with regrets that developments of this nature will undermine Ndigbo politically, said Okwukwu.
