The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission have arrested the former governor of Imo State, Ihedi Ohakim.
According to information, the former governor was invited to the EFCC office and to report on Wednesday (yesterday) for questioning but he refused to honour the invitation, hence the arrest today.
He was however picked up by the EFCC to clarify and answer questions on on-going investigations into allegations of corruption and embezzlement by his government.
His arrest was confirmed by the EFCC spokesman, Wilson Uwujaren, who said the former governor was in their custody.
Ohakim was governor of Imo State between 2007 and 2011. He was denied re-election in 2011 when the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, his party, denied him the ticket.
