“Okorocha And His Wife Arrested A Day After Leaving Government Office” – EFCC Denies Report

Some media reports had claimed the EFCC stormed Ogboko and arrested Okorocha and his wife, alongside Gerald Okorocha and Okey Okorocha.

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has denied reports that it arrested former governor of Imo state, Rochas Okorocha, and his wife, Nkechi Okorocha.

Some media reports had claimed the anti-graft agency stormed Ogboko and arrested Okorocha and his wife, alongside Gerald Okorocha and Okey Okorocha.

The reports further said the EFCC also sealed Eastern Palm University (EPU) in Ogboko, which was founded by the former Imo governor

However, a top source at the EFCC who spoke to SaharaReporters, said: “it’s not true”.

Corroborating this, Tony Orilade, acting head media, and publicity for the anti-graft agency said “we do not investigate sources of disinformation, we investigate economic and financial crimes. So if anybody is quoting us, we can then take it up.”

The news is coming a day after Okorocha while exiting office warned political opponents to steer clear of conspiracies and plans to arrest him. He said:

“As I walk out of this government house, let no on fight me and I will not fight anybody.

“When you remove this seal of governance off my face, you will see the real Rochas. The real Rochas is still asleep, if not bigger than the governor, so let no one fight me and I will not fight anybody.”

The ex-Governor of Imo alleged that there is an ongoing conspiracy to arrest and try him.

“Why I say so is there seems to be a gang up and conspiracy to hold me down politically but I don’t think they can hold me down politically because what God has ordained must surely come to pass. I will leave you for good and I will wish you well.”
