First daughter of the immediate past governor of Imo State, Rochas Okorocha, Uloma Nwosu and two others, have filed a legal suit against Governor Emeka Ihedioha.
Others joined in the suit as respondents before a Federal High Court include Imo State Commissioner of Police and four others over the invasion of her shopping complex, House of Freeda Limited.
Others are the State Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice, Ndukwe Nnawuchi; Chairman of the Imo State Task Force on Recovery of Government Assets, Jasper Ndubuaku; Kenneth Anaeme, and Christian Obiano.
The suit seeks the award of “N5 billion as exemplary damages against the respondents for forcibly invading the premises of the first applicant known as and called House of Freeda.”
Several persons were injured on June 27 when armed youths attached to the task force invaded the shopping mall.
The invasion was said to have been spearheaded by Mr Ndubuaku who had alleged that Mr Okorocha and members of his family carted away government property such as generating sets, chairs, television sets, kitchen utensils, beddings and cutlery all valued at over N50 billion.
The men left the mall with merchandise including electronic appliances which they alleged belonged to the government.
Sources said they were aided by armed policemen.
A sales representative alleged that the men also made away with N12.5 million cash.
