Imo State Governor Emeka Ihedioha has denied ordering the ongoing demolition of one of the Akachi towers, one of the monuments erected by his predecessor.
The demolition is coming barely 24 hours after Ihedioha assumed office.
Scores of Imo indigenes have condemned the action, stating the monument was constructed with public funds and should not be pulled down to spite the former administration.
Ihedioha was sworn-in as the sixth Executive governor of the state on Wednesday.
His Special Adviser, Steve Osuji, said the governor is not aware of the demolition of any structure and never gave such directive.
According to him the new governor is in the Government House trying to settle down in his office.
