Some armed operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, on Tuesday, stormed the Abuja residence of the former Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha.
It was learnt that the EFCC operatives arrived at Okorocha’s residence located in the Maitama area of the Federal Capital Territory with a mission to arrest the former Imo State governor and APC presidential aspirant.
Recall that the anti-graft agency had, on January 31, filed a 17-count charge against Okorocha before an Abuja Federal High Court.
The commission’s charge against Okorocha was filed in court a few hours after the former Imo governor formally declared his intention to contest for the presidential ticket of the ruling APC.
The EFCC had in the charge alleged that Okorocha conspired with others, including an APC member and five companies, to steal N2.9 billion belonging to the Imo State Government.
EFCC m spokesman, Wilson Uwujaren, could not be reached as of the time of filing this report.
