PHOTOS: Residents destroy Liberia's Sirleaf signpost recently erected by Okorocha in Owerri
Angry Imo State residents have destroyed the Ellen Johnson Sirleaf road sign which was built by governor Rochas Okorocha in Owerri, the state capital, to honor the former Liberian president.
Recall that Mr. Okorocha last year unveiled statues for Jacob Zuma of South Africa, Nana Ado Akufo of Ghana and the Liberian leader in Owerri.
Owerri residents were apparently not happy with the governor for honoring foreign leaders and not doing enough for his people in the state.
The other statues are located at the Ikemba Ojukwu Square which is heavily guarded.
Chris-lance Osondu-Onyemechara, a resident of Owerri, posted the following pictures online with the caption:
“When people are completely overwhelmed with hate and wickedness, this is part of the venom they pour out. This is what is left of Ellen Sirleaf Johnson road sign. You can breakdown the sign but Ndimo know whose name the road was named after. Break whatever but you cannot break the joy of Imolites towards this and other roads conceived, created and constructed by Imo State Governor, Owelle Anayo Rochas Okorocha.”
