Barely a day as Imo State Governor, Newly sworn in Imo State Governor, Emeka Ihedioha commenced the demolition of monuments built by the immediate past governor, Rochas Okorocha.
This is his first action as Governor of the state.
The Akachi tower which is one of the many tourist attractions built by Rochas Okorocha is being demolished as at the time this report is filed.
The tower was built on a reclaimed dumpsite that was abandoned by previous administrations.
The demolition was supervised by soldiers who stopped Journalists from getting close or covering the exercise.
The monument was one of the structures commissioned by Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo barely a week ago.
The monument, which is a massive tower with the symbol of a hand on a zenith, representing the hand of God on the state, sits on an expansive plot of land, reserved for religious purposes.
There are fears that the Governor will also demolish other monuments in Owerri, especially the famous Statues built by ex Governor Rochas Okorocha.
