Igbo community celebrates Okorocha’s release from custody


Igbo indigenes living in Abuja, under the aegis of the Igbo Brotherhood Community, have lauded the prompt release of Senator Rochas Okorocha by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

The former Imo governor was arrested by the anti-graft Agency, but was granted bail after 48 hours.

In a statement signed by its spokesperson, Chief Chiadikaobi Uwaoma, the group said: “We express our heartfelt joy at the prompt release of one of Igbo’s foremost political leaders by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission. His speedy release justifies our confidence that Owelle Rochas Okorocha is a responsible and trustworthy leader, whose words can be taken to the bank without questioning.

“We do not have the details of accusations against him, but we can say very confidently that the former governor will be exonerated at the end of the day, as long the issues border on corrupt practices and abuse of office…”

We believe that he is above board in those areas…

“Members of the Igbo Brotherhood Community in Abuja are determined to advance the interests of the Igbo nation and give needed support towards the actualisation of the collective agenda of Igbo political emancipation.”
