Pro-democracy and Advocacy Organization, Rainbow Coalition has raised alarm that Governor Rochas Okorocha’s continuous disregard for court judgements  and the rule of law is capable of throwing  Imo State into chaos and anarchy.

The coalition warned that Okorocha and Eze Samuel Ohiri  are probably on their way to jail for  flouting the  Court of Appeal judgment of July 5, 2013 which reinstated Eze Cletus Ilonuanya as Chairman of Imo State Council of Ndieze.

In a statement endorsed by Mazi Fidelix Nwabueze, Rainbow Coalition’s  South East Co-ordinator, the group said it is against democratic  norms for Okorocha to refuse to reinstate HRH Eze Cletus Ilomuanya as Chairman of Imo State Council of  Traditional Rulers despite the Court of Appeal judgement directing him to do so.

While positing that the judiciary in any democratic nation is the custodian of the constitution, the group frowned at the attitude of any government that disobeys the ruling of any competent court of law.

The statement averred that allegation that Okorocha is a serial law breaker is beginning to garner credibility, pointing out that it is most unfortunate that a governor, who swore to uphold and respect the constitution, has turned around to wilfully treat the same constitution that is keeping him in office with contempt.

“We therefore urge and demand Governor Rochas Okorocha as a matter of urgency to reinstate HRH Eze Cletus Ilomuanya and allow peace to reign in Imo State”.

The Rainbow Coalition also blasted the Igbo Council of Title Holders in USA (COTTHUSA), for ignorantly meddling  into the issue of Ndieze in Imo State and condemning the court Judgement that reinstatement Eze Ilomuanya.

“It is irresponsible for people living in a civilized society like USA to make unsubstantiated and uncomplimentary remarks in the print media against judgement of courts in their country”, adding that their utterances are induced by personal aggrandizement and self – interest gratification.

The statement reminded  the COTTHUSA that Nigerians no longer take kindly to neo-colonial mentality, stressing that they are  expected to exhibit decorum in their comments and actions especially  on issues concerning  Nigeria’s judiciary instead of indulging in laughable criticisms.
