A former commissioner in Okorocha’s administration who was in the air craft told our correspondent that “Eze Ilomuanya started accusing his Excellency of being the cause of all the things he is suffering today. To this, Okorocha replied him immediately by saying that he had no regrets deposing him as a king. Okorocha told him bluntly that he would repeat his actions 10 times if he were still the governor.”
The former aide stated that contrary to speculations in many quarters, the monarch didn’t use his walking stick on Okorocha.

The source said, “Eze Cletus Ilomuanya aboard Air Peace flight to Abuja this morning accosted Senator Rochas Okorocha. Theex-Governor was sitting next to him. His Royal Highness exploded with so much rage and royal anger. What started as a mellow drama, all of a sudden snowballed into a full-fledged confrontation inside the aircraft. This was as the charismatic popular royal father descended on Okorocha with his walking stick.
“If not for the timely intervention of the flight captain, who rushed out when Ilomuanya was hitting Okorocha with his royal walking stick to leave his sight, the story would have been something else.” Peace Air Flight
Recall that Okorocha deposed Ilomuanya as the monarch of Obinukwu autonomous community. He also recognized another person as the traditional ruler of the community.
