The Ex-Deputy governor of Imo state, Gerald Irona, who was remanded in Owerri correctional centre nine days after has been freed last Thursday.

Walter Duru, the Special Adviser on Media to Irona, confirmed it to newsmen in Owerri on Friday.

A federal high court in Abuja was said to have issued the order.
