Premium Times is reporting a very disturbing development. According to their news story:
A former governor of Imo State, Ikedi Ohakim, has been arrested by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.
Mr. Ohakim, governor between 2007 and 2011, was arrested Thursday at about 10.05 am at his residence in the Asokoro district of Abuja.
A source at the commission said an invitation was sent to the former governor but that he failed to turn up Wednesday as advised.
EFCC operatives, who had been on his trail for days, our source said, stormed his residence Thursday and drove him in an unmarked car to the commission’s headquarters in the Maitama district of the nation’s capital.
He is currently being detained, with his interrogation expected to begin later in the day.
The source said the former governor has questions to answer concerning a number of property allegedly traced to him.
Attempts by IMO STATE BLOG to reach Chief Ohakim did not yield any positive results by the time we filed this report. Stay tuned for updates.
