EFCC

Senator Rochas Okorocha has regained his freedom after spending two nights in the custody of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

The former governor of Imo State was released by the EFCC on Thursday, April 15.

The information was disclosed by his aide, who revealed that the former governor was released around 5:45 pm and he’s currently in his Maitama residence in Abuja.

Recall that the senator who represents Imo West Senatorial District in the National Assembly was accused of embezzlement and misappropriation.

The EFCC had on Tuesday, April 13, arrested Okorocha at his Unity House private office in Abuja around about 4 pm. He was arrested after a five-hour standoff with EFCC operatives who trailed him to the location.

Speaking on his arrest earlier, Okorocha said the anti-graft agency only invited him to make some clarification over the alleged misappropriation of public funds.

He said since the anti-graft agency was only doing its job, he would cooperate fully with it.
