Rochas Okorocha remains in the EFCC’s custody.


The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has yet to question former Imo State Governor Rochas Okorocha, who was kidnapped from his Abuja home more than 24 hours ago.

“Since his (Okorocha) arrest, no officer of the EFCC has spoken to him; he has not been interrogated, despite the eagerness to arrest him,” his daughter Uloma Nwosu said last night.

Mrs. Nwosu stated after meeting with the Senator representing the Imo West Senatorial Zone that her father’s imprisonment was more political than the anti-graft agency would have Nigerians believe.

“Everyone watched how they raided his home and shot like they were arresting a terrorist,” she claimed.

“It is obvious now that the EFCC intends to keep him until after the APC primaries, but we are relying on the judiciary to proffer justice as the last hope of the common man.”

Mrs. Nwosu appreciated Nigerians for their solidarity, saying that the Senator was in high spirits.

The EFCC operatives besieged Okorocha’s Maitama home for hours on Tuesday morning and accused the former governor of jumping administrative bail earlier granted him.
