Owerri - Gov Rochas Okorocha of Imo State has denied being slapped by a ghost.
There were reports that Okorocha was allegedly slapped by a ghost at the state Government House a few days ago.
The report also said the governor is currently receiving treatment in an Indian hospital.
But the governor has come out to denied the report.
Okorocha in a statement released by his chief press secretary, Sam Onwuemeodo said he is a Christian and does not know what it means to see a ghost.
Onwuemeodo also denied that the governor went to India for treatment.
"The governor had travelled to meet with some of the investors who had invited him for further discussions on the prospects of their coming to invest in the state.”
He travelled with few economic aides, and we informed Imo people and the general public and as God would have it, two days to the planned trip, the daughter gave birth to a baby boy and he would use the opportunity to visit his daughter,’’ Onwuemeodo stated.

Onwuemeodo noted that in the event of the governor being sick, the information would be made public.
“Ailment or sickness has been there with mankind, the angle that makes the whole claim funny is the “ghost dimension”, and that explains how spiritually poor those behind this balderdash are,’’ he added.
Onwuemeodo blamed the report on what he tagged the antics of some of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) folks in the state.
“We accused them (PDP) of being behind the malicious audio because it came twenty four hours after the convincing defeat of the party by the APC in the re-run elections in Okigwe senatorial zone and the three state constituencies of Isiala Mbano, Oru East and Owerri West’’ he noted.
