Following the arrest of Rochas Okorocha, former governor of Imo State, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has charged him to court over fraud.
Rochas Okorocha has been brought before a Federal High Court in Abuja for arraignment over N2.9B corruption charges.
Okorocha was driven to the court premises at about 8:45 a.m. and was immediately led to the court room.
Dressed in his usual green coloured Agbada with a brown cap to match, the All Progressive Congress (APC) Presidential aspirant, who is wearing a pensive mood, was made to sit near a dock where his plea on the fraud charges against him would be taken this morning.
Some of his family members and political associates who are in court ahead of his arrival could not get direct access to him due to heavy security mounted around him.
The aides comprising former Commissioners among others, are, however, miling around to catch a glimpse of the Senator representing Imo West in the Senate.
His lead counsel, Mr Kehinde Ogunwumiju, a Senior Advocate of Nigeria, SAN, has also arrived in court with a retinue of other lawyers.
At the time of this report, Justice Inyang Eden Ekwo who is to handle the case is being awaited in the court.
However, the court Registrar and other workers are already on their seats.
Okorocha was forcefully arrested on Tuesday in his Abuja residence by EFCC operatives as part of efforts to ensure his appearance in court today.
