Former Governor of Imo state, Senator Rochas Okorocha, has said he was not arrested by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), rather, he was invited for questioning.
This he said was, for him to make clarifications on some issues over the alleged misappropriation of public funds during his time as Governor of the state.
Okorocha spoke through his media aide, Sam Onwuemeodo, stating that;
“We have been inundated with calls by media houses and concerned Nigerians and beyond, trying to confirm the reported invitation of Senator Rochas Okorocha by the Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC). “The truth is that Okorocha left as the governor of Imo state on May 28, 2019. And shortly after his exit as governor, the Imo state government wrote petitions upon petitions against him." Okorocha's aide said that his principal, who now represents Imo West at the Senate is being investigated because of the new leadership at the commission.
