Uwajumogu has several explanations to offer the people of Imo State over the petition forwarded to the EFCC by his aide dated 18th Feb 2014 . The said petition to EFCC was also made public in several newspapers and magazines and also on the internet. The petition disclosed how fraudulent contracts for road projects worth billions of naira were awarded by him as Speaker of Imo House of Assembly without due process and how he used the proceeds of the crime to acquire several properties in Nigeria and abroad whereas the same state is in dire need of infrastructures and is facing serious youths unemployment issues including unpaid worker’s salaries.

Other allegations levelled against him which are by no means less indicting include that accusing him of diabolical practises and assasination "The same aide accused him of rituals and occult practices and explained how he (Uwajumogu) summoned all his senior aides in the presence of a native doctor where he (Uwajumogu) was stack naked and asked them to drink a concoction and kiss his manhood.
