The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has marked some property traced to the former Imo State governor, Owelle Rochas Okorocha, his family and cronies.

The property were marked following the refusal of the former governor to honour the Commission’s invitation extending to him for questioning on he acquired the property in question.

As contained in a press statement by the Commission, the property that were marked include: Dews of Hope Hospital traced to Dr. Paschal Obi, former Principal Secretary to ex-governor Okorocha; Market Square Super Market; premises belonging to Imo State Broadcasting Corporation now hosting Rochas Foundation College owned by Senator Okorocha.

Others are: East High Academy and East High College, owned by Okorocha’s daughter, Uloma Okorocha-Nwosu; Royal Spring Palm Hotel and Apartment, a 16 block cum 96 flats and eight bungalow multi-million Naira estate traced to Okorocha’s wife.

However, the Commission in a statement has said that it at no time “raided” nor “harassed” anyone in the course of marking the property as its operatives, in line with international best practices, informed the occupants of the facilities in good time, before taking the action.

The statement reads, “It is also pertinent to state that the Commission has pictorial and video evidences which put a lie to the claim that Rochas Foundation College was allegedly raided by the EFCC while in session.

This could not be so because the school was not in session and could not have had its students harassed as was fed some online media.

The Commission would ordinarily not bother with any allegation coming from the camp of Senator Okorocha, having noted his penchant for frivolities and propaganda; but this refutal has become pertinent in other to clear doubts especially in these days of fake news.

We urge all well meaning Nigerians to disregard the antics of some unscrupulous politicians and fraudsters who seek to distract the Commission from holding them accountable for their nefarious activities.”
