JUST IN: EFCC Releases Ex-Imo Gov, Okorocha

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has released the former Governor of Imo State, Rochas Okorocha after he spent two nights in detention.

Okorocha was released on Thursday evening, according to Daily Trust.

The former Governor is presently at his Maitama residence in Abuja.

Oriental Times recalls that EFCC grilled Okorocha on Tuesday.

Okorocha, who governed Imo between 2011 and 2019 was accused of embezzlement and misappropriation of state funds by the Governor of Imo State, Hope Uzodinma.

In February, the lawmaker accused Uzodinma of unleashing the EFCC and the Independent Corrupt Practices Commission (ICPC) against him.

Okorocha refuted the allegations, saying the state government had not been able to prove corruption allegations against him and his family in court.

Also, Okorocha explained why he cooperated with officials of the Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC) during his two-day detention.

In a statement through his media adviser, the former Governor said he cooperated with the EFCC was because he was only keen in his having the needed opportunity to address the allegations contained in the avalanche of petitions written by the lmo State government against him.
