Imo State Government Demolishes The Somto Hospital Built By Former Governor Rochas Okorocha


On Monday 16th November, the hospital named after a boy of 11 years old, killed during the demolition and relocation of the old market at Douglas road has been demolished by the state government.


Somto father was a trader that their shops were razed down by bulldozers, during that unplanned demolition which took place at the marketplace. The government stationed heavy military men and equipment of mass destruction, because of the refusal of the market people to succumb to the demolition of the ancient market.

Somto was hit by a stray bullet while helping his father to move goods from his father’s shop and died on the spot.


The Governor later built a hospital on the space where the market was demolished and named it “Somto hospital”.
