The EFCC has explained why it keeps siege to APC presidential aspiran and Sen Rochas Okorocha’s house in Maitama.

The commission said the purpose of the action is to arrest the former governor.

Although Okorocha is wondering why they won’t allow him to undergo the APC presidential primary coming up soon.

But reacting to the siege, the EFCC, in a statement by its spokesman, Wilson Uwujaren, said Okorochahas refused to honour several invitations extended to him after jumping the administrative bail earlier granted him by the commission.

According to the spokesman,  the EFCC had on January 24, 2022 filed a 17-count charge bordering on diversion of public funds and properties to the tune of N2.9billion against Okorocha.

He said the case was assigned to Justice Inyang Ekwo of the Federal High Court, Abuja but attempts to arraign Okorocha were twice stalled owing to the absence of the ex-governor who evaded service of processes.

”At the last adjourned date, March 28th, 2022, Justice Ekwo before adjourning until May 30th, 2022, had warned that it was ‘the last adjournment I shall grant in this matter.’

”In the circumstances, the commission is left with no option but to effect the arrest of Senator Okorocha and bring him to trial,” he said.
