Former Governor of Imo state, Rochas Okorocha has finally been arrested by operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) after they forcefully gained access into his Abuja home.
Okorocha who had earlier refused to be taken away by the operatives, insisting that he will not submit himself to the anti-graft agency without a warrant, was arrested and whisked away at 6:48pm on Tuesday May 24.
EFCC’s spokesperson, Wilson Uwajuren had said earlier that the anti-graft agency’s operatives were at the Senator’s home to bring him to stand trial before a federal high court in Abuja for allegedly conspiring with five companies and others to steal N2.9bn in public funds.
Other defendants standing trial in the case include Anyim Nyerere Chinenye, Naphtali International Limited, Perfect Finish Multi Projects Limited, Consolid Projects Consulting Limited, Pramif International Limited, and Legend World Concepts Limited.
