Just In: EFCC arrest Okorocha in Abuja

Former Governor of Imo, Rochas Okorocha, has been arrested by operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) at about 4 P.M. Tuesday, according to a report by Premium Times.

Okorocha who is the current senator representing Imo West at the Red Chambers was reportedly arrested at his Unity House private office in Abuja after his refusal to honour a repeated invitation extended to him by the anti-graft agency.

The Publication quoted sources that said the anti-graft agency had repeatedly invited the former governor to its Abuja headquarters in connection with multiple corruption allegations against him.

The former governor was arrested after a five-hour standoff with EFCC operatives who trailed him. He is currently being interrogated at the EFCC headquarters and it is unclear if he would be allowed to go home today.

Details of the allegations against the senator are sketchy but seem to be related to suspected corrupt practices during his eight-year reign as governor of Imo State.

EFCC spokesperson, Wilson Uwujaren, also confirmed the former governor is in his agency’s custody, according to the report.

  1. Comr kalu crisis control action squad.lagos state..The Agency should be more seroius to address these issues .they are many of them .especially the easten governors. They all are looters even the one is on sit now. I know hm very well. They are the people causing this agitation of south east and south south .if they used the fund allocated to the state properly the people in that region wll hv jobs and infrastructure the life of the people wll change but arrogantly and criminaly converted the fund to their private use. If you the aGency knows your mission is political .kindly dont mess up the matter. Get all their properties confiscated to the state. My name is clearly written. I dont know the reason i should hide my personal info for what. Untill we are ready to fight corruption we can’t get away from this mess. Tsnx
