I Have Never Been Arrested Before By EFCC – Ohakim

Okorocha-and-Ohakim1Former Governor of Imo state, Chief Ikedi Ohakim, has denied being arrested or detained by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, (EFCC).

The alleged arrest was in connection with the N62 billion fraud contained in a government audit report.

But Ohakim told newsmen in a telephone interview on Thursday that he was never arrested as published in an Owerri- based tabloid and widely rumoured in the state.

He described the newspaper report as “a figment of the reporter’s mind.”

“What did I do that EFCC should arrest me? If EFCC invites me, I will answer them. In fact, before now, the agency had invited me once or twice to come and give some information.

“I have never been arrested before by EFCC and as I am speaking, I am holding a meeting in my office in Asokoro, Abuja,” Ohakim said.
