Former governor of Imo state, Senator Rochas Okorocha, yesterday challenged the Economic Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, to publish details of the bank accounts where it recovered from him (Okorocha) N7.9 billion.
Okorocha who is representing Imo West senatorial district, in a statement in Owerri, through his Special Adviser on Media, Sam Onwuemeodo, also demanded from the EFCC, to publish the houses of Okorocha, in Owerri and Abuja, which the anti-graft agency said it has marked.
Also, the statement blamed the EFCC saga faced by Okorocha, on former administration of Emeka Ihedioha and the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, who they said wrote a petition against Okorocha and his family.
According to Senator Okorocha’s reaction on the recovery of N7.9 billion by EFCC, “The media had reported the Head of the Port Harcourt zone of the Economic and Financial Crime Commission, (EFCC), Mr. Usman Imam, to have claimed at a press conference, on Thursday, June 11, 2020, that he recovered N7.9 billion from the former governor of the state, Senator Rochas Okorocha while he was in charge of Enugu zone of the commission.
“He was also quoted to have talked about Okorocha’s properties marked in Owerri and Abuja, by the commission.”
