JUST IN: EFCC Arrests Ex-Imo Gov Okorocha

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has arrested former Imo State governor, Rochas Okorocha.

The Head of Media and Publicity of the EFCC, Wilson Uwujaren, told our correspondent on Tuesday that Okorocha was arrested in Abuja.

Uwujaren, however, declined to comment on the reason for the arrest of the Senator representing Imo West Senatorial District.

When asked, the EFCC official said, “It is true, he (Okorocha) was arrested today in Abuja but we are not giving details.”

Okorocha’s latest arrest is coming weeks after operatives of the Imo State Police Command arrested him for allegedly unsealing Spring Palm Estate linked to his wife, Nkechi.

The Imo State Government in February, sealed the estate and other properties it claimed to have been “diverted” by Okorocha and his family members.

The ex-governor has been at loggerheads with his predecessor, Hope Uzodinma, who has vowed to recover all “diverted” assets.

Okorocha was later released but about 14 of his loyalists are being tried.
