EFCC Arrests Former Governor, Senator Rochas Okorocha in Abuja .

 The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has reportedly arrested a former governor of Imo state, Senator Rochas Okorocha. 



According to Premium Times, the senator was arrested about 4pm on Tuesday, April 13, at his Unity House private office in Abuja. 

The publication learned that the politician was arrested after a five-hour standoff with EFCC operatives who trailed him to the location. 

Okorocha had reportedly declined to honour several invitations from the agency prompting the commission to send its detectives after him. The said arrest of the politicians is reportedly connected to the alleged monumental graft which allegedly took place during his eight-year tenure as governor. 

Wilson Uwujaren, the spokesperson of the EFCC confirmed the arrest to Vanguard newspaper. He said Okorocha was in the custody of the commission.
