Imo state governor Rochas Okorocha has denied claims that he renamed Assumpta Avenue in Owerri, the state capital, after President Muhammadu Buhari.

Okorocha came under attack from the public as some youths destroyed a brick with the inscription Muhammadu Buhari road at the popular Assumpta Roundabout on Tuesday.

But the governor described it as misinformation from opposition parties.

According to him, President Muhammadu Buhari road began from Government House Roundabout, Owerri and terminated at Warehouse Roundabout.

Okorocha said the purported claim was to create an impression of misunderstanding between the catholic faithful and the government.

He also said Imo government was not in any war with Catholic Church and urged mischief makers to desist from creating tension in the state.
