BREAKING: Detained ex-Imo Gov, Okorocha asks court to compel EFCC to release him on bail

Detained former Imo State Governor, Anayo Rochas Okorocha has asked a Federal High Court in Abuja to compel the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, to immediately release him on bail.

Okorocha on Friday predicated his bail request on the ground that he is a presidential aspirant on the platform of the All Progressives Congress, APC, and that his political ambition would be jeopardized unless granted bail.

EFCC operatives swooped on his Abuja residence three days ago and effected his arrest and detained him to ensure his appearance in court on Monday, May 30 to take his plea in the fraud charges.
