No court ordered EFCC to recover property from me, Okorocha insists
Former Governor of Imo State, Rochas Okorocha, has said there is no time any court ordered the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to recover any of his property or seize it.
Okorocha flayed those who published on social media the list of items that would be recovered from him.
In a statement yesterday, his Special Adviser (Media), Sam Onwuemeodo, said: “A head-less and “tail-less piece or document, with the referenced caption, has been trending on social media, for some days now. Few print media establishments that glory in gossips had also succumbed to the antics of the elements behind the balderdash, by publishing it.
“In the publication, those behind it listed 33 items they said the court had asked the EFCC to recover from Okorocha and family. Let us swiftly state unequivocally and with equanimity, and we stand to be contradicted, that the document or the publication is fake. Somewhat, moonlight tale or tomfoolery, which is neither here nor there.”
According to the senator representing Imo West Senatorial District, no court even ordered that a pin be recovered from him.
“To say the least, no court in the land, both within and outside – magistrate, customary, high court, appellate court or Supreme Court – had ordered EFCC to recover even a pin, from Okorocha, let alone 33 items. The EFCC they talked about was the same commission that invited Okorocha on Tuesday, April 13, 2021, and allowed him to go on Thursday, April 15.
“Those behind the gimmicks could not reason to the extent of knowing that if the court at any level had ordered EFCC to recover all that they had listed from Okorocha, the commission would not have, again, invited him for questioning.”
