APC Presidential Primary, Cause Of Okorocha’s Arrest-Camp Insist

The camp of former Imo Governor and Senator, Rochas Okorocha attributes his arrest by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to political quest of becoming president.

EFCC officials and security agents on Tuesday besieged his residence in Abuja, and whisked him away after breaking in.

The Senator representing lmo West District is being prosecuted for charges, including diversion of State funds and the commission alleged multiple turning down of invitation and jumping administrative bail.

Mr Sam Onwuemeodo, Okorocha’s spokesman questioned why the arrest coincided with the All Progressives Congress (APC) screening for presidential aspirants.

Onwuemeodo in a statement,accused his detractors of championing his arrest,as his principal demands for a warrant or court order from the anti-graft agency.

But none was provided,instead they imployed the use of force without a court order or warrant.

Onwuemeodo recalled that on the day Okorocha declared to run for the office of President, the EFCC invaded the venue to arrest him.

They claimed they had come to arrest Okorocha and arraign him even when he had not been served. The general outcry by the public saved the situation,” he said.

This arrest occurred less than 48 hours after the lawmaker hosted the meeting of APC presidential aspirants from the South-East.

Onwuemeodo warned that if Okorocha is blocked from his bid, over a matter he is deemed innocent until proved otherwise, “it won’t be a nice story for history and posterity.

The reason for our doubt is that Okorocha has not done anything to warrant such onslaught.”

He stressed that the ex-governor has “sacrificed a lot for Nigeria”, thus stopping his quest for the presidency “would be most uncharitable and very unfortunate”.

The statement further advised the EFCC to avoid “strange hands” in its operations.

The commission should not abort Okorocha’s presidential ambition. Let the APC delegates or Nigerians do that”, Onwuemeodo added.
