Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State has reacted to his reported arrest, alongside his wife on Thursday.
Reports went viral on Thursday that the Governor and his wife were arrested by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.
The EFCC has however, denied arresting the immediate past governor of Imo state.
In a statement signed by his Special Adviser on Media, Sam Onwuemeodo, Okorocha denied the arrest, describing it as propaganda by the present government.
The statement read, “We have read on-line including some print media on-line platforms that the Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC) has arrested the former Governor of Imo State, Owelle Rochas Okorocha, the wife, Nneoma Nkechi Okorocha, and one of the brothers, Okey Okorocha, today, being Thursday, May 30, 2019.
“We won’t delay to State that the story of their arrest is not true. It is totally false. It has no iota or atom of truth. Simply put, former Governor Rochas Okorocha, the wife Nneoma and brother Okey, have not been arrested by the Crime Commission. This is the truth of the matter.
