This is coming barely two months after the police arrested him on the orders of Governor Hope Uzodinma of Imo state.

The anti-graft agency, after a stand-off that lasted for hours, picked up the lawmaker who is said to have refused to honour its invitation, a conduct that triggered his arrest.

Wilson Uwajeren, spokesperson of the EFCC confirmed Okorocha’s arrest who is allegedly being investigated over monumental graft during his eight-year reign as governor.
