Supreme Court Verdict: Viral photos taken at funeral, not reflection of Ihedioha’s mood — Aide
The outgoing Imo state government has clarified that the viral picture circulating online does not in any way represent the mood of the Rt. Hon. Emeka Ihedioha, the immediate past governor of the state, while the Supreme Court Judgment was announced.
The government in a statement clarified that the picture was taken on Friday, December 20 2019, when the then-governor received the body of his departed commissioner for environment, Late Hon. Tony Okere, at the council chambers.
“The state had organized a reception to pay last respect to the commissioner at the executive chambers of Government House, Owerri.
“It is, therefore, wrong to assert that the picture was taken on the day of the Supreme court judgment,” the statement noted.
The picture had gone viral with many sharing it after the controversial Supreme Court judgement that ousted Ihedioha.
