Why we arrested presidential aspirant, Rochas Okorocha — EFCC

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has explained why it’s operatives arrested presidential aspirant and ex-governor of Imo State, Rochas Okorocha, on Tuesday, May 24, 2022.
.
.
Okorocha was arrested after hours of siege at his Maitama residence in Abuja.
.
.
Speaking in a statement, the commission’s spokesperson, Wilson Uwujaren, said Okorocha had jumped an administrative bail and resisted being served court papers for his corr#ption trial.
.
.
According to him, “EFCC had on January 24, 2022 filed a 17-count cri#inal charge bordering on diversion of public funds and properties to the tune of N2.9billion 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.”
.
.
In the circumstances, the Commission is
left with no option than to effect the arrest of Senator Okorocha and bring him to trial.”
