Legislative leader of Imo State, Rochas Okorocha said through an announcement he discharged to newsmen, that the Ekeukwu Owerri market and Douglas Road would be renamed after Somtochukwu Ibeanusi, who kicked the bucket amid the destruction of the market.

 Rochas put forth this expression through a discharge to newsmen in Owerri, by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Sam Onwuemeodo.

Nonetheless, the representative kept up that the passing of the kid was all the while confusing to him.

As indicated by the announcement, “Government has chosen to respect Somtochukwu despite the fact that the kid’s passing was confusing light of the fact that a move can’t be making place on Douglas Road and the boy died at Mbaise Road.

 He said “No matter what happened, whatever is the case, since that boy died within that period of liberation, that boy must be honoured.

 “And for the fact that the whole of  Owerri leaders are mourning him, wore black even to Catholic and Anglican churches. If Owerri leaders can mourn a boy from Nnewi, Anambra State, that shows that  there is something great about that boy.

“So for every activity in that Ekeukwu and Douglas Road, the boy will be honoured, because he died on the day of the event. That boy is more important than any Eke or Afor, Ekeukwu or Ekenta.

“So both the Douglas Road and projects to be sited there will be named after the boy, Somtochukwu The project will be named Somtochukwu and the road, Somtochukwu Road, in line with the way all of us are mourning that boy.

I will not go back to any deity again by naming it Ekeukwu road. Imo State has gone past that level.”
