More facts have now emerged on why Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta state allegedly ordered the state House of Assembly to suspend the embattled chairman of Uvwie council area, Mr. Henry Baro.
According to reports by THEWILL, an impeccable Government House source who craved anonymity disclosed that the Governor was embarrassed with the disturbances in Uvwie and the role played by the council boss.
The source alleged that Baro had sent an sms to the Inspector General of Police (IGP) who is said to be his ‘godfather’ trying to implicate the Governor on the Uvwie motor park crisis, alleging that the governor should be held responsible for breach of peace in the council area but the sms leaked to the governor, thus triggering the new twist to crisis.
The state Assembly had stated that Baro was suspended over allegations of fraud and ordered that the vice chairman should take over the council pending the outcome of investigation on the alleged fraud.
The House immediately constituted a four-man adhoc committee headed by Mr. Oboroh Preye, Eric Oharisi, member, Anthony Elekeokwuri, member and Owosike Austin as committee Secretary.
The House also ordered all council chairmen to submit all their financial records since assumption of office to the Adhoc committee on or before Thursday.
