Charly Boy responds to claims that he was hiredAccording to Mr. Onwumeodo, Charly Boy, the self-professed president of frustrated Nigerians and conveners of OurMumuDonDo movement, was hired by Mr. Okorocha’s opponents in 2014 and premiered his attacks on the governor during the burial of his father, Justice Chukwudifu Oputa.

The statement further stated that the attack was after Charly Boy had received financial support from the government for the burial of the late jurist.

The Imo State government alleged that Charly Boy was recruited this year by opponents of President Buhari, who wanted to exploit the illness of the President through the demand for his resignation by protests headlined by OurMumuDonDo Movement.

“Charly Boy personally came to Government House to collect. But before the burial, they told him that the former President had directed that he should not allow Governor Okorocha to talk at the burial service, not minding that protocol demanded that the governor should talk.

“Acting on the script given to him, Charly Boy snatched the microphone from a sitting governor, who came to honor his late father and who also gave money for the burial. He did that to satisfy Governor Okorocha’s opponents and see whether that could help them in the 2015 election.
