The Governor of Imo state , Owelle Rochas Okorocha, has stated that the impeachment of the former Governor of Adamawa State, Alhaji Murtala Nyako, might cause the withdrawal of some foreign assistance in the tackling the nation's security challenges..

Okorocha while reacting through the press statement issued by his Senior Special Assistant on media, Sam Onwuemeodo, regretted that despite series of discussions and dialogue for the members of the state assembly to have a rethink, they still went ahead.

"The impeachment won't encourage other nations of the world willing to help us come out of our security problem to take us serious. To say the least, the impeachment was not the best of actions this time," part of the statement reads.
