EFCC releases Ex-Imo Governor, Rochas Okorocha

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has released the former Governor of Imo State, Rochas Okorocha after he spent two nights in detention.

Okorocha was released this evening, according to Daily Trust.

Recall EFCC invited Okorocha on Tuesday for questioning.

Okorocha, who governed Imo between 2011 and 2019, has been accused of embezzlement and misappropriation of state funds by the Governor of Imo State, Hope Uzodinma.

In February, the lawmaker accused Uzodinma of unleashing the EFCC and the Independent Corrupt Practices Commission (ICPC) against him.
