EFCC releases Okorocha after two nights of drilling in custody

A former governor of Imo State, Rochas Okorocha, has been released by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) after spending two nights in detention.

Okorocha’s aide, who disclosed this to Daily Trust via telephone, said the former governor was released around 5:45 pm and he’s currently in his Maitama residence in Abuja.

When contacted, the spokesman of the anti-graft agency, Wilson Uwujaren said he would get back to our correspondent on the development.

The EFCC operatives had, on Tuesday, arrested the lawmaker at about 4:10 pm at his Unity House office located at Garki, Abuja.

Okorocha, who governed Imo between 2011 and 2019, has been accused of embezzlement and misappropriation, an allegation he has refuted.

Meanwhile, a group, Igbo Youths For Equity, has accused the EFCC of allowing itself to be used as a tool for political witch-hunt for arresting Okorocha.
