Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State has denied reports that the State has ceded some lands for the establishment of cattle colonies.
This is as the Federal Government is planning cattle colonies to curb herdsmen and farmers crises.
But in a statement through Prof. Nnamdi Obiaraeri, Commissioner for Information on Tuesday, Okorocha urged Imo people to disregard the reports.
According to him, “This information that Imo has ceded a part for the proposed cattle colony is wicked, unfounded and untrue, although it represents the typical product of warped thinking of desperate mischief makers via the social media.
“Imo people and members of the public are therefore advised to disregard these baseless and laughable rumours.
“It is unfortunate that manufacturing wicked and capricious lies on an hourly basis has become the hallmark or DNA of desperate opposition politicians in our dear state.”
