A former governor of Imo State and Presidential aspirant of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Rochas Okorocha, has raised the alarm that he’s currently under siege.
Okorocha, who spoke to journalists at his Maitama residence in Abuja, called on the stakeholders in the country to prevail on the operatives of EFCC to vacate his residence.
The politician wondered why his house would be invaded on the screening day of all the Presidential aspirants of APC, saying he never received any invitation or got court summons from any quarters.
”Frankly speaking, the situation I find myself is a situation of what I call hostage. Policemen and EFCC operatives are currently in my compound and they want to possibly whisk me away… my gate is blocked.
”All I am asking for now is to allow me to go for my screening because I am a Presidential aspirant and our election comes up on Sunday. If I am not allowed to go for this screening, I might miss it.
”I am not an unknown person in the country. I have an address and people know me in the country. All what it takes for the EFCC is to send me an invitation and I will gladly oblige,” the lawmaker said.
Feelers have it that the anti-graft agency has reinforced more security operatives who were still laying siege to the politician’s residence as of the time of filing this report.
