Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has sealed some properties in Imo State.
Meanwhile, EFCC stated that its’ Enugu Zonal Office marked the properties on Tuesday, July 23rd, 2019.
This action was due largely to the failure of Okorocha to honour EFCC invitation for questioning on the acquisition of the properties.
Among the marked properties are:
⛛Dews of Hope Hospital traced to Dr. Paschal Obi, former Principal Secretary to ex-governor Okorocha.
?East High Academy and East High College, owned by Okorocha’s daughter, Uloma Uche Nwosu.
?Royal Spring Palm Hotel and Apartment (a 16 block with 96 flats and eight bungalow multi-million Naira estate) traced to Nneoma Rochas Okorocha.
EFCC stated that the Commission at no time “raided” nor “harassed” anyone in the course of marking the properties. As its operatives, in line with international best practices, informed the occupants of the facilities in good time, before taking the action.
It stated thus “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” EFCC concluded.
