Operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Tuesday stormed the residence of former Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha.
The anti-graft agency team stormed the residence of the former governor in the Maitama area of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) to arrest him.
In a video retrieved by AF24news, the EFCC operatives were seen within the premises of the former governor.
They insisted that Okorocha, who is seeking to contest the presidential election on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC), should submit himself for arrest or honour a long-standing invitation to their office.
When newsmen arrived the residence, it was gathered that the EFCC operatives had barricaded the residence of the presidential aspirant.

According to them, none of the members of Okorocha’s family would be allowed to leave the compound until they produce the former governor.
The operatives, who were later seen screening people going out and coming into the premises, also warned the mobile policemen attached to Okorocha to withdraw from the residence.
