Okorocha Cries Out After EFCC Storms Home – ‘I Am Under Hostage’

Rochas Okorocha, former Imo State Governor and presidential aspirant under the platform of All Progressive Congress (APC) has said he is being held hostage by officers from the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

This was as the commission’s agents stormed his Abuja residence on Tuesday.

The presidential hopeful, who said the EFCC move may be politically motivated, added that he would be holding a press conference in his premises as the next line of action.

He noted that he would only make himself available to the Commission if shown a warrant of arrest.

His words;

“I am (being) held hostage here, I would say. I have enquired if they have an arrest warrant or not and I am supposed to be getting ready for screening.

“I don’t know what is really happening; it is unfortunate that this is happening here. I will be here until I know what they want, I want to see a warrant of arrest or court order.”

“I am trying to address a press conference. Of course, the EFCC cannot stop the press from coming into my premises. They are inside my compound but the press is coming inside my house to interview me, they can’t stop them, he insisted.

“I’ll be here until I know what it is, because this is something serious, I want to see an arrest warrant or a court order”, he cries out.
