Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Thursday, May 30, stormed Ogboko in Imo state and arrested Rochas Okorocha. The reports which emanated from Daily Trust and Sahara Reporters stated that the commission also arrested his wife Nkechi Okorocha, some of the family members of the former Imo state governor, Gerald Okorocha, Okey Okorocha and sealed his Eastern Palm University in Ogboko, Imo state.

However, the EFCC has not released any official statement regarding the reported arrest of the former Imo state governor.

Meanwhile, the EFCC gave more details into its probe of the Imo state government. It is reported that the anti-graft body said it froze N5 billion funds belonging to the state government because Governor Rochas Okorocha was spending too much money during the 2019 general elections.

The EFCC further also revealed that the N8 billion Paris Club loan refunded to the state for the payment of salaries was mismanaged by the governor. This was revealed by EFCC’s zonal head for south-east region, Usman Imam, during a chat with journalists.

According to him, the commission’s timely intervention saved the state over N5 billion that would have been deployed in vote buying by the Okorocha’s administration during the polls.

However, Okorocha had accused the EFCC of not providing information on how it arrived at the conclusion that he wanted to withdraw money for vote-buying during the last general election.
