Okorocha Denies Aides ‘Hiding’ From EFCC




Senator Rochas Okorocha (APC-Imo North) has dismissed reports that his aides are hiding to evade arrest by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

Reacting to claims his aides had left the Imo state to avoid arrest by the anti-graft commission, Okorocha in a statement described the report as “totally false”.

According to him, “The report claiming that my aides have gone into hiding did not mention any of my aides alleged to have gone into hiding.

“The report has no iota of truth because no name was mentioned. In the whole story, the reporter could not mention any of the aides or the EFCC officials who came to Imo, to arrest them.

“The report did not mention the offence which my aides committed, that made EFCC to come to Imo.”

The former Imo governor stated that his aides are ready to honour any invitation of the EFCC.

“EFCC does not need to come to Imo for any of my aides; all the agency needs to do is to send an invitation and it will be honoured,” he said.
