Allegations of Money laundering: EFCC grills Okorocha, to return Monday

Operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission have questioned the immediate past Imo State governor, now a lawmaker, Senator Rochas Okorocha.



It was gathered that Okorocha who is being investigated by the commission for money laundering, was questioned last Friday.

It was learnt that the ex-governor had been asked to come back on Monday, August 19, for further questioning and to provide certain documents in respect of the allegations against him.

A source said, “We grilled him on various suspicious transactions carried out by his administration particularly towards the end of his tenure. He also responded to allegations of money laundering and the alleged acquisition of property with state funds. He has been directed to return on Monday.”



The commission had earlier traced some property, including residential estates, schools and shopping malls to the senator, some of which were sealed.

Among the sealed property and investments traced to Okorocha last month were Rochas Foundation College, Owerri, East High Primary and Secondary school, Owerri which belonged to Okorocha’s first daughter, Uloma Nwosu, and All-In Supermarket, Owerri, Imo State.
