Senator Rochas Okorocha’s Abuja residence was stormed today by the operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, to effect his arrest.

The Spokesman for the EFCC Mr Wilson Uwujaren, said the move followed the refusal of the former governor to honour invitations after jumping the administrative bail earlier granted him by the anti-graft agency.

Uwujaren recalled that the EFCC had on January 24, 2022, filed a 17-count criminal charge bordering on diversion of public funds and properties to the tune of N2.9billion against Okorocha.

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

At the last adjourned date, March 28th, 2022, Justice Ekwo before adjourning until May 30th, 2022, had warned that it was “the last adjournment I shall grant in this matter”.

“In the circumstances, the commission is left with no option than to effect the arrest of Senator Okorocha and bring him to trial,” the spokesman said.
