Daughter of former Imo governor, Uloma Nwosu, has termed the arrest of her father, Senator Rochas Okorocha illegal.
She stated that the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) had no legal justification to arrest him at his Maitama residence on Tuesday, May 24.
Speaking in an interview with Arise TV today May 25, Uloma claimed the EFCC operatives failed to present any legal document or arrest warrant to justify breaking into their Abuja home and forcefully arresting the politician.
“The way they (EFCC operatives) had presented themselves did not show that it was something that was official, because there was no legal documents supporting their action.
So you could say it was illegal battery or whatever we may call it. At this point, I was also scared as well, because it didn’t look official, it didn’t look like something that was done right. So of course we were afraid for His Excellency’s life, and that is why he requested something that was simple: ‘give us a document, give us a paper, a court order’”she said
She said no one has heard from him since he was arrested at about 6.30pm on Tuesday.
