Operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, have arrested former governor of Imo state, Rochas Okorocha, for the diversion of public funds

EFCC Spokesman, Wilson Uwujaren, said the action was as a result of the former Imo state governor’s refusal to honour invitations after jumping the administrative bail earlier granted him, by the anti-graft agency.

Uwujaren recalled that the EFCC had on twenty forth of January Twenty twenty two, filed a seventeen count criminal charge, bordering on diversion of public funds and properties, to the tune of two point nine billion naira against Okorocha.

The Spokesman further explained that the case was assigned to Justice Inyang Ekwo of the Federal High Court, Abuja but attempts to arraign the former governor was twice stalled, owing to the absence of the ex-governor who evaded service of processes.
