Okorocha In Trouble As EFCC Continues Investigation


The embattled Governor of Imo state, Rochas Okorocha who was recently denied Certificate of Return by Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) may be in for another trouble as the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Monday confirmed that the Commission was going ahead with the investigation of Okorocha's administration.


The Acting Chairman of EFCC, Ibrahim Magu confirmed ongoing investigation in an interview with Channels Television.


Asked whether the Commission was investigation Okorocha, Magu said 'definitely".


“Of course, we are doing a couple of checks and investigations here and there. We are investigating almost everybody,” he added.


He, however, made it clear that the EFCC would need to attain a certain level before it can disclose any information about an ongoing investigation.


According to him, this was necessary to prevent any action that can jeopardize or interfere with the process of the inquiry.
