Rochas Okorocha: Buhari has promised to take up my EFCC case - AfricaFlavourNews


 Rochas Okorocha, a former Governor of Imo state and current senator representing Imo west senatorial district has said that President Muhammadu Buhari has promised to look into the criminal charges preferred against him by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

 

Addressing State House reporters after a closed door meeting with the President at the Presidential Villa, Abuja on Thursday February 3, the senator alleged that the EFCC has continued to harass him in spite of a subsisting court order restraining the anti-graft agency from prosecuting him.


Revealing that he met the President in order to get justice because the EFCC is still holding his international passport, Rochas Okorocha further claimed that it is the responsibility of Buhari to ensure that justice is served on all citizens.

 

He said; 

 

“The President said he would take up the matter, especially when he saw the judgment. He said, he will take up the matter and find out what is actually happening. And I hope he will do so. And I believe he will do that.”

 

Insisting that the 17-count fraud charge against him for allegedly embezzling N2.4billion through connivance with some individuals and companies is “politically motivated”, Rochas Okorocha maintained that the anti-graft agency should maintain the court order issued.
