Okorocha made this revelation through a release issued to newsmen in Owerri, by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr Sam Onwuemeodo.

According to the release, “Governor Okorocha named a road at the back of the Police Headquarters after Mr. Taiwo Lakanu, gave him a choice land at Shell Camp, Owerri, worth over N25 million and  N5 million for fuelling of his car.

“The governor also asked him to name any part of the state he would like to live even after his retirement from the Police.”

The release also gave some reasons for which the governor took the decision: “I want to thank you for the services you rendered to Imo State and her people. What made you outstanding is that your job comes first before money.

“Your success came because money never counted in your willingness to succeed. You have set a very high standard for the in-coming Commissioner of Police. Now, Imo people will judge Commissioners of Police from your standard. I hope and pray that the new CP will measure up.

“You came with love in your heart. You mingled well that nobody will actually know if you are Igbo, Hausa or Yoruba.

“That is why you succeeded in chasing armed robbers and kidnappers away from Imo. Imo people will decorate you with the highest  honour when the time comes. We shall be giving you our Imo Merit Award.”
