Okorocha, wife not under arrest- EFCC

The Economic and Financial Crime Commission has denied it arrested the immediate past governor of Imo state, Rochas Okorocha and hs wife.

The Daily Trust earlier Thursday reported that the former governor was under the custody of the anti graft agency, a report that was carried by many media outlets including this platform.

However, contacted on the matter, EFCC’s acting Head, Media and Publicity, Tony Orilade, said, “It is fake news.”

“We don’t investigate the source of disinformation. We investigate financial and economic crimes. So, if anybody is quoting us, we can then take it up.”
