Okorocha Reveals Next Line Of Action After EFCC Invasion



2023: Okorocha Set To Attend APC Presidential Screening

The former Governor of Imo State, Senator Rochas Okorocha, has planned to hold a press conference to address the invasion of his residence by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) operatives.

Naija News had earlier reported that operatives of EFCC stormed the residence of Okorocha on Tuesday.

In a chat with Channels Television on Tuesday, Okorocha stated that he will address the press and the EFCC cannot stop the press from entering his compound.

The former Governor added that the anti-graft agency must provide a warrant or a court order before he would be submitting himself.

He said: “I am trying to address a press conference, Of course, the EFCC cannot stop the press from coming into my premises. They are inside my compound but the press is coming inside my house to interview me, they can’t stop them, he insisted.

“I’ll be here until I know what it is because this is something serious, I want to see an arrest warrant or a court order.”

Recall that the EFCC had filed a 17-count charge to the tune of N2.9 billion against Senator Okorocha in late January.

Okorocha, in the charges filed at the Federal High Court in Abuja, was accused of conspiring with others, including a member of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and five companies to steal from the public coffers.

Others listed as respondents to the suit were Anyim Nyerere Chinenye, Naphtali International Limited, Perfect Finish Multi Projects Limited, Consolid Projects Consulting Limited, Pramif International Limited, and Legend World Concepts Limited.
