The season of arrests of alleged high profile corrupt personalities in Nigeria took a dramatic turn on Tuesday May 24th, as operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) whisked away a sitting Senator and former Governor of Imo State,Rochas Okorocha. The operatives of EFCC laid a 10hours siege on Okorocha’s Abuja home and had to forcefully penetrate the roof of the Senator’s house to effect his arrest!
He was said to have a case to answer over alleged mismanagement of 2.9billion Naira when he was Governor of Imo State. His arrest came when he was to go for his screening as a Presidential aspirant of the ruling party,All Progressives Congress, APC.
Spokesperson for EFCC,Wilson Uwujaren said Okorocha’s arrest followed the refusal of the former governor to honour invitations after jumping the administrative bail earlier granted him by the Commission.
Uwujaren said in this circumstances, the Commission was left with no option than to effect the arrest of Senator Okorocha and bring him to trial.
The question again is: who is next ???
