‘I’m under hostage’ – Okorocha cries out as EFCC invades his house

Rochas Okorocha, a presidential candidate for the All Progressives Congress, has allegedly been held hostage.

The remark was made by Okorocha in response to the presence of EFCC operatives in his Abuja residence.

The Imo West Senator’s residence in Abuja’s Maitama neighborhood was besieged by EFCC operatives on Tuesday.

In reaction to their presence, Okorocha claimed that anti-graft agents broke into his home without a warrant of arrest.

Speaking with Channels Television, Okorocha said: “I am under hostage I would say, the EFCC is at my house both the back and the front.

“I would say, I have enquired if they have an arrest warrant nothing, and I am supposed to be getting ready for screening.

“I don’t know what is really happening, It is unfortunate that this is happening here.”

Okorocha vowed to hold a press conference on the matter, adding that EFCC banned journalists from gaining access into his house.

“I am trying to address a press conference, Of course, the EFCC cannot stop the press from coming into my premises. They are inside my compound but the press is coming inside my house to interview me, they can’t stop them, he insisted,” he said.
