KanyiDaily recalls that the former Imo State Governor was arrested by operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Tuesday, May 24 after several hours of resistance.

The anti-graft agency disclosed that they had to storm his residence after he failed to honour their numerous invitations for questioning over his alleged fraudulent deals.

Rochas Okorocha who represents Imo West in the National Assembly had filed an ex-parte application in which he predicated his bail request on the ground that he is a presidential aspirant on the platform of the All Progressives Congress, APC, and that his political ambition would be at stake if he wasn’t granted bail in no time.

Ruling on the bail application, Justice Eden said he was not inclined to admit him to bail and then ordered Okorocha to put the Federal Government on notice to come and defend his detention.

The Senator had been slated for arraignment on N2.9bn money laundering charges before the same judge twice but didn’t show up in court.

KanyiDaily recalls that NNPP has reportedly offered Peter Obi the vice presidential ticket.
