This is perhaps one of the reasons why the Imo state government in December 2015, flagged off the Freedom Falls.
During a recent tour of Owerri, the Imo state capital, according to Naij.com, it was discovered that the beautiful sceneries at this tourist destination as many trooped to the centre to celebrate the Easter holidays.
Located at Warehouse junction, opposite Orlu road, in Owerri, people of different levels and cadre appreciated Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo state for the beautiful sceneries in the waterfalls.
People who couldn’t hold back their joy said that they can now see and enjoy what people pay to go and enjoy in America, London, etc.

I don’t stay in Owerri but I have heard of this place and I decided to come see it myself. It’s beautiful and I must commend the governor for this initiative.”
The business effect of the Freedom Falls can’t also be overlooked as cameramen jumped at the opportunity to take pictures of fun seekers, who desired to have a photograph for future purposes.
Beauty is indeed at the Freedom Falls in Owerri and Imolites are part of it. See pictures below:
