Why We Arrested Rochas Okorocha In His House –EFCC | READ DETAILS

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), has explained why it invaded the Abuja residence of senator Rochas Okorocha.

The anti-graft agency had invaded the former Imo state governor’s house in the early hours of Tuesday, broke into the apartment as he resisted arrest and whisked him away at about 7pm.

According to a statement signed by the Commission’s spokesperson, Wilson Uwujaren, they invaded his house as he jumped bail and refused to honor series of invitation sent to him.

The Statement read;

Why We Are At Okorocha’s Home – EFCC

Operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, on May 24, 2022, arrived at the Maitama, Abuja home of a former governor of Imo state, Senator Rochas Okorocha, to effect his arrest.

The move followed the refusal of the former governor to honour invitations after jumping the administrative bail earlier granted him by the Commission.

 EFCC had on January 24, 2022 filed a 17-count criminal charge bordering on diversion of public funds and properties to the tune of N2.9billion against Okorocha.

 The case was assigned to Honourable Justice Inyang Ekwo of the Federal High Court, Abuja but attempts to arraign Senator Okorocha were twice stalled owing to the absence of the ex-governor who evaded service of processes.

At the last adjourned date, March 28th, 2022, Justice Ekwo before adjourning until May 30th, 2022, had warned that it was “the last adjournment I shall grant in this matter”.

In the circumstances, the Commission is left with no option than to effect the arrest of Senator Okorocha and bring him to trial.
