EFCC arrests Akwa Ibom ex-Attorney-General over alleged N1.4b fraud
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), yesterday, arrested a former Akwa Ibom State Attorney-General and Commissioner for Justice, Uwemedimo Nwoko over alleged laundering of N1.4 billion.
This followed as the commission continued interrogating former governor of Imo State and representative of Imo West Senatorial District, Rochas Okorocha, who was arrested on Tuesday for alleged N7.9 billion money laundering charge.
Nwoko, an alleged accomplice in the N1.4 billion money laundering charge against former President of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA), Paul Usoro, was said to have been at large for over two years.
But he was arrested in Uyo on Tuesday for his role in the alleged conversion of N1.410 billion worth of Akwa Ibom State Government property.
EFCC spokesman, Wilson Uwujaren, who confirmed the arrest, said he (Nwoko) would be charged to court as soon as investigations were concluded, adding that he was not certain if operatives were done with quizzing Okorocha.
