Former governor of Imo State, Rochas Okorocha has spoken over his arrest by the Economic and Financial Crime Commission(EFCC) yesterday for alleged embezzlement of public funds during his time as governor.
While speaking through his media assistant, Sam Onwuemeodo, the Senator who is representing Imo West Senatorial district at the 9th Nigerian Senate said he was invited and would give the needed cooperation.
“To us, the Commission is doing its job and should be given the needed co-operation. And Rochas Okorocha being a law-abiding citizen, would always cooperate with the Commission over the Matters in Courts.
“EFCC is not a slaughter House, but a very responsible institution and should be seen as such,” Onwuemeodo said.
TOS News reported on Tuesday that Rochas Okorocha was arrested after a five-hour standoff with operatives of the EFCC at his private office in Abuja.
The EFCC had in 2020 hinted of its plans to arraign the former governor for alleged embezzlement of public funds during his time as governor of Imo
