EFCC Operatives Storm Senator Okorocha’s House in Abuja (News Central TV)

A combined team of Police offers and operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), on Tuesday, stormed the Abuja residence of a former Imo State Governor and All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential aspirant, Rochas Okorocha.

Sources say, the operatives who stormed the house in Maitama district of Abuja allegedly without arrest warrant, insisted on forcefully taking the Imo West Senator away.

Though details of the operatives’ visit was not clear, Okorocha’s aide who didn’t want his name mentioned, said the EFCC operation was targeted at stopping the former governor from attending the screening of APC presidential aspirants.

This is coming barely 48 hours after Okorocha hosted other APC presidential aspirants from the South-East, where they forged alliance ahead of the presidential primaries.

Another source at the anti-graft agency said on Tuesday that Okorocha has rebuffed several invitations extended to him over alleged corruption against him.

The spokesman for the EFCC, Wilson Uwujaren is yet to respond to several phone calls by our correspondent.
