The Bank of Industry (BOI) has written to the Imo State Government to immediately revoke the ownership of lands illegally acquired by Mr. Mike Ikeoku within 2009 and 2010 as they were obtained under false pretence and identity as gathered by 9News Nigeria.

Information contained in the message by the Industrial bank, it is said that the land under the false ownership of Mike Ikeoku was facilitated by the bank for the state government and so is a property of the state government which is for agricultural practices for the development of the state.

The bank lamented that the said lands were bought through unscrupulous means and frowned that the previous administration in the state failed to take ownership of the lands and utilise the goodwill of the bank in bringing development through the agricultural sector but choose to allow the individual personalise a public property.

BOI therefore appeals to the Imo State Government under the administration of Gov. Hope Uzodimma to quickly reclaim these lands and commercialise them for the business of Agriculture that will further boost food productivity in the state.

Recall that the administration of Gov. Hope Uzodinma has been aggressive towards the industrialisation of the state and in making sure that youths in the state are gainfully empowered.

It is expected that through the collaborative efforts of the state government and the Bank of Industry, Imo state is set to become an industrialised state as well as promote existing Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises(MSME) in the state.
