More than 24 hours after its operatives whisked away former Imo State Governor Rochas Okorocha from his Abuja home, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has yet to interrogate him.
His daughter Uloma Nwosu, who stated this last night, said: “Since his(Okorocha) arrest, no official of the EFCC has spoken to him; he has not been interrogated, despite the desperation to arrest him.”
Mrs Nwosu said after visiting the Senator representing Imo West Senatorial Zone, that the arrest of her father was more political than what the anti-graft agency wanted Nigerians to believe.
She said: “Everyone saw how they invaded his home shooting as if they were arresting a terrorist.
“It is obvious now that the EFCC’s intention is to keep him until after the APC primaries, but we are relying on the judiciary to proffer justice as the last hope of the common man.”
Mrs Nwosu appreciated Nigerians for their solidarity, saying that the Senator was in high spirits.
The EFCC operatives besieged Okorocha’s Maitama home for hours on Tuesday morning accused the former governor of jumping administrative bail earlier granted him.
