Operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Tuesday evening arrested a former governor of Imo State and senator representing Imo West senatorial district, Chief Rochas Okorocha, over alleged sleazes while he served as governor.

The former governor, it was learnt, was arrested in his Abuja residence by the operatives, who were said to have been on his trail for some time.

A source in the commission informed the Nigerian Tribune that the former governor was arrested following his failure to honour several invitations sent to him to report at the anti-graft agency’s headquarters in Abuja.

“EFCC resorted to his (Okorocha’s) arrest following his refusal to honour invitations sent to him. Many invitations were sent to him to report at the Abuja headquarters but he failed to do so. Before his arrest today (yesterday), our operatives have been on his trail for some days,” the source told Nigerian Tribune.

EFCC’s Head, Media and Publicity, Wilson Uwujaren, confirmed Okorocha’s arrest to Nigerian Tribune, saying that, “it is true he was arrested today. He is with us now.”

As of the time of filing this report, the former governor was still being questioned by interrogators and it is uncertain if he would be granted administrative bail to go home.

Though Uwujaren did not reveal the reason behind his arrest, sources informed that the senator had been on the anti-corruption commission’s radar since he left office in May 2019 and in July 2019, it sealed off some properties linked to the former governor, his wife and daughters in Imo State.

Group Decries Extra-Judicial Killing Of Fulani

A coalition of Fulani youth groups has called on the federal and state governments to ensure a halt to what they described as “the extra-judicial killings of Fulani in the country” by those opposed to the existence of the race.

The coalition in a communiqué after a press conference, Tuesday, in Abuja said they would not sit and watch their people labeled as miscreants and killing them like fouls in their own country.

The coalition under the aegis of Fulbe Umminobe Sukabe Development Association of Nigeria (FUSADAN) dissociated themselves from the group that reached an agreement with state governors over the recent crisis in parts of the South west.

Speaking on behalf of the group, the leader of FUSADAN, Comrade Mohammad Ardo, said of all the tribes in Nigeria, non is as law abiding as the Fulani, insisting that the stock have benefited the least from the Nigerian government.

He said the Fulani nation is fed up with being described as criminals whenever security challenges occur in the country.

“Of all the tribes in Nigeria, none is as law abiding as the Fulani but the Fulani have not benefited in any way from the Nigerian government; no schools, no place to graze, no electricity, water etc. This accusation of criminality must stop.

“Miyetti Allah is a Fulani group but they are not delivering their responsibilities, which is why the Fulani youths have gathered themselves to take a stand because they are not delivering what we want.

“A meeting was held recently in the South-west where some Fulani organisation signed and accepted an agreement that grazing should be stopped. If it was a real Fulani organisation, they wouldn’t have accepted because if the government wants us to stop, they must provide certain things for the Fulani because we have had grazing reserves before independence.

“Fulani are fully Nigerians and they have the right to travel, live and graze anywhere in Nigeria as enshrined in the Constitution of the country. Any newspaper, magazine, journal or any other news channel that uses the name ‘Fulani’ to qualify any crime or criminal should be ready to meet our lawyers in court. We say emphatically that, enough is enough of these senseless killings of innocent Fulani and their herds across the South-West and South-east states of the country.”
