Ex Imo State governor, Rochas Okorocha has slammed PDP for spreading the reports that he was detained by EFCC.
Rochas’ tenure as governor expired on Wednesday, May 29, 2019, which paved the way for Emeka Ihedioha, the PDP candidate that beat his All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state’s March 9 governorship election.
Reports had it on Thursday, May 30 that EFCC arrested Rochas and his wife over misappropriation of funds and money laundering. But EFCC later said they did nothing of that sort.
Rochas believes PDP was behind it.
His words, “The fact is that the new PDP government in the state has decided not to toe the path of honour but has decided to continue the old way of the party, by trading on lies or falsehood. They call it propaganda. The new government is behind the false story. They even called some media editors to make the story headline.
“We only want to ask them to leave responsible institutions or establishments like EFCC out of their dirty tracks, especially in dishing out their lies.
“The PDP in the state had written and sponsored a lot of petitions to agencies and commissions against the former governor. They had told their supporters that the former governor would be whisked away by the EFCC hours after the inauguration on May 29, 2019, and that is the reason behind this falsehood.”
