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 commission said the move followed the refusal by 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 property to the tune of N2.9 billion 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.”

The commission said that in the circumstances, it was left with no option other than to effect the arrest of Senator Okorocha and bring him to trial.
