The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has revealed that former Imo State Governor, Senator Rochas Okorocha is no longer in their custody.
He was invited for questioning on April 15 2021 for allegedly diverting 7.9 billion naira during his tenure as Governor between 2011 and 2019.
An official statement from the anti graft agency read:
“We didn’t bother about whether he spent 24 hours or 48 hours at the Commission’s office. We were only keen on his having the needed opportunity to address the allegations contained in the avalanche of petitions written by the Imo State Government, against the former governor.
“Remember also that, we had alluded that, EFCC was not a slaughterhouse, but a responsible institution, established for the good of the nation and her people. And Okorocha being in his house today, only confirmed our hypothesis that, indeed, the Commission’s office is not an abattoir.”
