Ex-Gov Candidate Arrested After Suing EFCC for N65bn

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), has arrested the candidate of the Action Democratic Party (ADP), for 2017 Anambra State governorship poll, Chief Ifeanyichukwu Okonkwo.

Okonkwo was arrested by the EFCC after he instituted a N65bn law suit against the commission.

It was learnt that the anti graft agency had earlier detained the human rights activist for two days and released him on administrative bail.

However, after 18 months of granting him bail, the EFCC failed to charge him for allegedly obtaining money under false pretences.

 Okonkwo then sued the agency for unlawful detention, harassment and freezing of his accounts since May 2019 without any court order.

The case came up on Thursday at the Federal High Court, Enugu, but the EFCC was reported not to have filed any defence in the suit.

The EFCC, however, picked up Okonkwo immediately after the court adjourned the case till Monday for hearing.

It was gathered that Okonkwo had earlier  petitioned  the acting Chairman of EFCC, Ibrahim Magu, complaining  about the action of  the South-East Zonal office of the commission.
