Written by on April 14, 2021

IN A SWIFT REACTION, FORMER IMO STATE GOVERNOR, ROCHAS OKOROCHA, HAVE DISMISSED REPORTS ON HIS ARREST BY THE ECONOMIC FINANCIAL CRIMES COMMISSION (EFCC).

IN A STATEMENT ISSUED BY HIS SPOKESMAN, SAM ONWUEMEODO, THE EX-GOVERNOR SAID HE ONLY HONOURED AN INVITATION BY THE COMMISSION.

THE EFCC HAD EARLIER ON TUESDAY CONFIRMED THE ARREST OF THE SENATOR REPRESENTING THE IMO NORTH SENATORIAL DISTRICT FOR ALLEGED MONEY LAUNDERING.

THE COMMISSION SAID THE FEDERAL LAWMAKER WAS ARRESTED AFTER HE FAILED TO HONOUR ITS INVESTIGATION.

HOWEVER, OKOROCHA INSISTED THAT HE WAS NOT ARRESTED BY THE EFCC, SAYING THE ANTI-GRAFT AGENCY SIMPLY INVESTIGATED HIS ACTIVITIES FOLLOWING A PETITION WRITTEN BY AN EX-GOVERNOR OF IMO STATE, EMEKA IHEDIOHA.
