Amaechi Denies Justice Okoro’s Bribery Accusations, Threatens Law Suit

by on October 19, 2016

Minister of Transportation and former Governor of Rivers State, Rotimi Amaechi has responded to Justice Inyang Okoro’s accusations, vehemently denying them. His response was stated in a brief press release issued earlier, stating that the accusations were “blatant lies bereft of any iota of truth or even logic.”

In a letter written to the Chief Justice of Nigeria, dated 17th October, 2016, Justice Okoro had stated that his arrest by the SSS was in connection to his refusal to accept a bribe offered by Rotimi Amaechi, to deliver judgment in favour of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and its candidates in the Rivers and Akwa Ibom States’ Gubernatorial election cases.

Amaechi’s statement reads;  This accusation from Justice Okoro 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.”

    Do u except Amechi to accept dat he truly approached d justice?? He must deny it, but we all know dat Amechi is a desperate and greedy man dat wants to grab everytin to himself… There has bn many corruption allegations hanging on his head in River state but Buhari chooses to ignore while fighting d opposition… Leave sentiment aside we all know deep in our mind dat Buhari is a confuse man dat only came to revenge against d pple dat kept him from winning election for four consecutive times hitherto last year.. If he is sincere, let him probe some corrupt APC members like Amechi and co.. We all know d truth, but due to our party affiliations we choose to be insincere…
