The Imo State Government has denied the banner headline report of the Vanguard Newspaper Stating that the “Appeal Court has ordered the freezing of all the accounts of the Imo State Government for the money in the affected accounts to be used to settle the debt owed to the litigants”, with the overnment stressing that the Appeal Court did not give any order or ruling freezing the accounts of the State government as claimed in the report.

The Attorney-General of the State and Commissioner for Justice, Barr.Cletus Nlebedim told media practitioners yesterday on the same day, Vanguard Newspaper carried the disputed report, that the story was nothing but a deliberate mischief and then challenged those behind the false report to publish their facts.

Hear the AG, “I want to categorically state that the Court of Appeal Sitting in Owerri did not make an order or gave any ruling freezing the accounts of the State Government as reported by the Vanguard Newspaper. The burden now lies on the Vanguard Newspapers to authenticate their Claim by Publishing their facts”.
