Former Imo state deputy governor, Gerald Irona, has been remanded in prison by the magistrate court sitting in Owerri on Thursday.
The presiding magistrate, C. N Ezerioha, after hearing the prosecution and defence counsel over alleged violent comment by Irona, ordered that he should be remanded in Owerri correctional centre.
The former deputy governor had been arrested from his Owerri residence on Wednesday by men of the Imo state police command before he was arraigned in court.

According to police, his arrest was due to a statement he made during the Supreme Court battle between governor Hope Uzodimma and former governor Emeka Ihedioha, if the later was removed from office.
