First son of Imo State Governor, Ahamefula Okorocha, is currently receiving treatment at an undisclosed hospital in London for yet-to-be disclosed ailment.

Ahamefula, an engineer, was said to have been flown to London for treatment after he allegedly slumped during the Christmas week.

Okorocha and his wife were said to have accompanied their son on the medical trip.

Minister of Science and Technology, Dr. Ogbonnaya Onu confirmed this on Sunday, while explaining the absence of Governor Okorocha during the South East zonal meeting of the All Progressives Congress (APC) chieftains. The meeting was held in Ebonyi State.

“I had informed Governor Okorocha of this meeting and he had promised to be here.

“The governor, however, called me back days after our conversation to explain that his son had taken ill and he will be taking him to London for treatment, and as such, would not be able to attend the meeting. We pray that his son recovers quickly.”

Reports from London indicate that Ahamefula is responding to treatment.

In September, there was a rumour of the death of the governor's son at a London Hospital, but the Governor said it was not true.

The governor's office had in a statement said: "The fact and indeed, the real story is that, contrary to the rumour from the kingdom of darkness, the young man is hale and hearty and the wish of the wicked ones would never, never prevail over him".
