Imo State Government has filed an appeal at Supreme Court challenging the ruling of the Appeal Court which reinstated the former council chairmen in the state.
Governor Okorocha, who disclosed this at Sam Mbakwe Airport shortly on arrival from Lagos, also reiterated the position of his administration to adhere strictly to the rule of law.
He warned the former council chairmen against taking laws into their hands as government is totally committed to ensure that there is law and order in the state.
He urged the people of the state to remain calm and law-abiding as government has taken the necessary steps to ensure adequate protection of lives and properties.
Governor Okorocha also warned that his administration would not hesitate to deal with whoever that breaches public peace, adding that anybody caught in such act would definitely face the full wrath of the law.
